This is a song that you will love or sit back or more likely blown back in your chair. Try to get to the end of the first verse, the words are so rebellious. This bit of Aussie Rock has not much to do with the photo, it’s just the name of the song came along when I read the words Up against it and thought, yeah that’s photo
I took this photo a while ago on a almost deserted Saturday afternoon street. Just on the footpath, sitting there. I looked up and saw I was outside of the Environment Centre in Ballina. The original is in colour, the cage is blue. Search my site and there is a post where I have used a colour photo before.
Dutch goes the Photo word prompt Message inspired me and I just had to put this photo up again.
I saw this on the street in Ballina, a town just up the road a ways. At the time, and still now a couple of years later, it is a silent protest at the Australian Government holding refugee children in detention.
In Sydney Australia, you can see many example of where the old meets the new. The old building, Scots Church has a new building built above it which has 148 apartments which allows the new to hover above the old.
In another part of Sydney, the inner city suburb Newtown has a range of eclectic people and shops. Here we have an outdoor/indoor room on the awning of the building.
One of the contentious issues in Australia is that refugees are kept in detention until their applications are processed. It is believed that children should not be held in these camps. I found this protest in the street in Ballina. a town not far from my place. It is a sad photo when you think about the meaning.
