Here we are in May already and some words that I may struggle with this month. A bit of lateral thinking may be needed. I don’t really have any alpine photos so a photo of Cradle Mountain in Tasmania with a bit of leftover snow will have to do. If you are wondering about the Teddy Bear in the cage, that was part of a silent protest against the Australian Government holding refugee children in detention camps,
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.
This months photo challenge in square format from Becky is Time
This month I will put a song with the photo.
The December theme is TIME. I am sure everyone has found at least one #timesquare, but just in case you are struggling here are some #timesquare ideas;
Timepieces – clocks, watches, sun dials and egg timers
Sayings – Time & tide wait for no man (or woman!), A stitch in time saves nine, Early bird catches the worm, In the nick of time or More haste, less speed
Synonyms – era, moment, season, infinity, interval, lifetime and age
Out of the box – nighttime, downtime, pastime and mealtimes!
The word prompt from Laura at Manic Mondays 3 Way Prompt: Confession
I wrote this poem, when I was about 17 years old, one day in an English class in High School. The teacher noticed me not paying attention, called me to the front of the class and made me read my poem to the class. I must add I went to an all boys high school.
Owl is sitting
in his tree.
Teddy is here,
I love Teddy
and Teddy loves me.
And Owl is still sitting
in his tree
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.
