Countryside

Paula’s Sunday Black and white challenge is opportune, as I straddle two hemispheres. This time next week Poland will be the other side of the world, and Potato Point will be home again.

The first photo was taken on a family holiday, at Grójec Wielki in western Poland – rain and sun and barbecues and mushrooming and kayaks and forest.

The second photo was taken at a Nerrigundah in the mountains west of Potato Point, a sleepy village now, but once a flourishing gold mining town.

    Barefoot twinnies with Maja tiptoeing gingerly, so very sweet. Is the crouching person taking a photo? The Nerrigundah cottage photo is charming. Happy Sunday Meg, your last in Warsaw for a while.

    Both photos seem to take me to some other time far in the past. The barefoot twins in their raincoats, a shed that belongs to some other decade. This is what I look in a countryside, a sense of timelessness. Beautiful work and precious memories, Meg.

    • I’m honoured by your comment, Paula, and you’ve picked up on a half-articulated feeling I had about the Polish photo and articulated its timelessness beautifully. Your challenge and your comment gave me pleasure in the middle of the endless task of cleaning up and packing up. Peaceful week wishes to you.

    The atmosphere of the second pic is very striking. But love ‘barefoot in the rain’.

    “Barefoot in the rain” HAS to go on your wall! It is a beautifully composed picture and captures a rainy day perfectly.
