15. Country people


Country people like big hats and country music and make their own entertainment ... and I like that too.

  2. Another fantastic shot - love this one.
    Lights, fire, hats, guitars, awnings.

    1. The awnings and timber building ... a dead giveaway that it is in Queensland. It was the June in Injune event.

    1. Not exactly impromptu. The country people put on these events as part of an annual celebration. Yes it was a very warm event on a very cold night.

  4. I experiened a country sing-a-long once when I toured the Kimberleys. It was cringe-worthy. It so aped everything Nashville. I simply had to leave.

    1. I think country is a bit of acquired taste, drunk with mother's milk. While my parents were not fans of country music it had a way of just being there on the radio, at local concerts etc. I too am not keen on the American flavour these days.

      I have found the sing-a-longs at campsites so be somewhat varied in quality.

  5. I can almost feel the heat from the fire. The silhouette in the foreground works really well here.

    1. I was shooting hand held and you have no idea how many images I took trying to get a decent shot of that silhouette.

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
