Cricket at Coogee Oval

Leather and willow
Crashing on the radio:
The sound of summer

I took this photo yesterday at Coogee Oval. Randwick-Petersham were taking on Penrith in a first grade match and it was the first match I’ve been to this year. Randwick-Petersham have been having a pretty good season so far but they were bowled out for 49 yesterday. Maybe I’m a bad luck charm?

I edited the photo to remove some of the detail as I wanted to give it a bit of a dreamy look, more like an oil painting than a traditional photo. I like how it turned out in the end.
