Photo Friday – ‘Confusion’.

This week’s Photo Friday will be a little different.  Fellow campaigner, Susanna Leonard Hill has started something different on her blog.  A theme will be posted every week, so that others can place a photo representing that theme on their own blogs.  As she’s a children’s writer, the photos need to be kept in a range appropriate for 0-12 year olds.

As this week’s theme is ‘Confusion’, I didn’t have to search far amongst my photo collection.  A few years ago, I went to the Mulga Bill Bicycle Festival at Yeoval.  This was once the home of famous Australian poet Banjo Patterson, better known for his poem The Man from Snowy River.

The confusion?  Well, along the road as we got closer to the town, we encountered things like this:-

Somebody obviously went to a lot of effort for the day’s bike ride (you certainly wouldn’t be seeing me doing this).  And it certainly can create a bit of havoc when you’re the one driving!

Fortunately on the day I was honoured to meet the legendary Australian actor Jack Thompson.  I’d also show you photos of me with him, but unfortunately, my husband couldn’t work my camera! 🙂

  1. Oh, no! Couldn’t work the camera? Of, your husband owes you big time for that!

      Hi Jen. I know; he’s not going to live that one down! Jack was good about it too – a genuinely nice bloke.

  2. Gives to meaning to the old fashioned and multi captured, shoe tree. Cool. Dimity

      Hi Dimity. You’re right – although I think I’d rather have one of those than fiddle with a bike up a tree! 🙂

  3. Debbie – this is a great one! My mind is already turning over story ideas for why a bike would be in a tree (besides your given reason about the Festival.) A bully? A dare? Magic? The possibilities abound! If you get a chance, would you be so kind as to repost your link into today’s post on my blog? I’m sorry I was late getting it up. If you put it there now, people will find it in the right thread and otherwise I’m afraid they might not see it!

    Hi Susanna. I’m glad you like it – it has plenty of possibilities for a children’s story (now you’ve got me thinking too)! Thanks for letting me know about the new blog post on your site – I’ve just posted the link for you now. I look forward to seeing what other people come up with.

  5. Brilliant! That’s certainly different to sneakers over the telephone wires. Nice to find your blog Debbie. I’ll pop over again to read some poetry 🙂

      LOL! I haven’t seen sneakers over the telephone wires for a while. I’m glad you liked it.

      Thanks for stopping by Catherine and I hope you like my attempt at poetry too. I’m pleased to meet you. 🙂

  6. Wow, that one’s loaded with possibility!

      Hi Ruth. I thought this one was perfect – odd, yet full of opportunities for story ideas for kids. I might end up thinking of a few short story ideas myself!

  7. Great picture! Reminds me on the snowmobile in the tree near my house lol.
    I left you an award at my blog 🙂

    Hi Kerri. I’m glad you like the photo and thank you SO much for The Versatile Blogger award. It’s the third time I’ve received this award, so I guess as you say, it makes me feel even more special! 🙂
