I was a little obsessed with photographing the white swans I saw on our recent trip to Europe. I spotted a lamentation of swans on our mandatory horse drawn carriage tour of the town of Brugge in Belgium. I’m sure our driver thought I was strange when I took off towards the canal to take pictures of these rather common birds. I tried to explain to him that these swans were rather exotic in my opinion because in Australia we only have black swans. I’m not sure he believed me.
