Postcards from Australia

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! 🙂
