…have been fascinated with the way the Japanese draw waves for ages… reducing them to simple lines for wood cut or brush stroke… also intrigued by other folks take on the idea, the rabbits, the Mickey Mouse hands….

…might as well give it a whirl…

…when I’ve got time…

…but a little blurry ‘cos I don’t think she’s had much to do with humans and was very fidgety, even with us keeping to a very polite distance, so I was taking more notice of my escape route than keeping an eye on focus!!…
