Fine, curly brown grass

Views through the tram window >>

Two little ravens opposite the St Kilda East Cemetery on a verge beside the tram. One collects fine, dry, curly, grass, checking back for the best pieces, and trying to fit more and more in its beak. It does this with care. The dry fluff meant for a nest contrasts with the bird’s glossy black feathers.

A man eats sauerkraut from a plastic container backlit by the sun, digging with his fingers like a tiny earth mover.

Men move rocks with yellow bulldozers between the train line and containers. The containers are piled on top of each other and face the orange horizon toward the docks.
