This image of a woman sleeping was taken in a park known as Pityarilla, (the aboriginal word for "Marshmallow Park"), in Adelaide's Southern Parklands. Her boyfriend explained that the pair take it in turns to sleep over at one another's digs - last night she was staying in his part of town (Pityarilla) and tomorrow night he will spend time at her place - a women's shelter on the other side of town. In less than ideal circumstances, the couple was able to enjoy the customs and formalities of dating. Love, that most potent of societal connectors, could defeat the challenges that the harsh environment posed. *** image reproduced with permission granted by the subjects.
