AFL Round 15 – Carlton v Collingwood: break in the gloom


winter night
an unexpected break
in the gloom



Friday night football
a seagull gets caught
on camera



five goals down
in the first
– the cold!



sunset Blues disappear



day turns to night
an early injury
changes everything



the ascent
of the moon
Cloke clunks it



dew drops
Krakouer mops up
the crumbs



cold night
Dwyer’s goal
feeds the flames



after the goal
Blues fans boos fill
my heart
