Today Suzanne and I went for a drive to take some photos and have a picnic.
It was a warm sunny day-- no wind--just perfect for some girl time together.
As a lot of you know Australia is in the midst of a terrible drought and we in the cities feel hard done by when we can't water our gardens (well not me because I don't have a garden as such) but just 1 hour out of Canberra this is what greeted us.
Dry grassland with big gaping soil eroded furrows.
It is heartbreaking to see our beautiful country in this condition but without water what chance does it have.
Lots of clouds but no rain in sight.
Anyway we had a wonderful day -taking photos of old rusty cans-broken fences-brick walls weathered with age and the most wonderful old church with its rusted bell hanging motionless like it hadn't been rung in a long time with paint peeling off the window sills and a big old gate but no fence to hold it up.
It really does make you aware of what is around you when you have a camera in your hand.
