Thinking about Assignment One

I’m choosing Tropical Tourist as my theme for this assignment. Mostly because this jumped out at me straight away given that we are currently on a holiday in the Whitsunday’s in Northern Australia.

Brainstorming what Tropical Tourist brings to mind for me:

Bright sun, blue-green calm water, lush greenery, coral, fish, shells, sand, seaweed, warmth, humidity

juxtaposed with

Cocktails, seafood, tacky souvenirs, loud music, towels, thongs, pools, bright coloured patterned clothing, hats, shops

An uneasy combination of natural beauty and commercial excesses

Just wanted to get this started. It’s nearly 3 am so I have to go to bed but am keen to get going with my textile course and wanted to get my online journal set up and ready to use.

Actually turned out to be 3.30 before I got to bed and still not done completely but this morning I think I have completed the set up.  Yay!
