Is that a Coolibah tree beside the abandoned house? Every Australian knows about Coolibah trees because the bush ballad Waltzing Matilda is nigh on our unoffical national anthem but most of us live nowhere near the inland where they grow. Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong, Under the shade of a Coolibah tree, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me. Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me.

Love the composition - and the palette - of both these. I am starting to develop a strong affection for historic reenactments.ReplyDelete
Nice capture of the horesman looking at the girl.ReplyDelete
Love the top portrait one. And I love how you mentioned he was looking at a girl :)ReplyDelete
LOL - must have been a very thriling girl ;-). The portrait is very nice.ReplyDelete
