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.

Lovely colours, and lines, and clever use of focus. Reminds me of the washing hanging on the line at Easts Caravan Park in Wollongong.ReplyDelete

He he I seem to have a thing for sun-dried washing as well as old decaying stuff. Perhaps I am an old fashioned girl at heart .... except for a 40 year love affair with information technology!
An interesting shot for all the reasons Julie mentions.ReplyDelete
A lot of these photos are quite old, back in the days when I spent more time caring about my images rather than simply pointing and shooting. Methinks it is time I got back to caring again.Delete
