Friday Foto Finder; Customs

Having spent time living with Indigenous people in the Australian Outback I was fascinated by many of their customs.

The one which really caught my attention, and which I failed at when I attempted it was carving Emu Eggs.

Here, in the hands of a master carver, is a Honey-Possum in a Eucalypt tree coming out of the shell of this egg. George was using a small steel pen-knife. His ancestors used sharp stones.

This was one of a series of twelve he was doing on commission. The old ones had magic. These modern ones do a magic to bank balancesĀ  šŸ™‚

So What customs can you show us?
Leave a comment and a link here and we can all come and see.

Next week Friday Foto Finders will be looking for a STAR.

Friday Foto Finder; Delicate

Searching through my photo archives I found that I don’t do “Delicate” very often.

However I did find a butterfly. Which is delicate fauna.

And it was feeding on a Melaleuca blossom. Which is delicate flora.

What is your choice for “Delicate”?

Friday Foto Finder; Corner

One of my favourite things is the open road.

That and wondering what is around the next CORNER.

This CORNER is in the Great Sandy Desert in the North West of Western Australia.

One of my favouritest CORNERS of the World.

What do you think of when you see the word “CORNER”?

Friday Foto Finder; Age

At Hamelin Pool, a small cove in Western Australia’s Shark Bay, is a colony of some of the oldest living creatures on Earth.

Stromatalites. Whenever I think I am feeling my age, I think of these little fellows.

Friday Foto Finder; Well

When the Swan River Colony was first settled by Europeans in 1829 one of the first public buildings erected was the Round House.

It is a twelve-sided building and consisted of 8 cells and an ablutions area. It is called “The Round House” because “Dodecagon House” was too much of a mouthful!

That’s correct. The first building was a Gaol!

The first hard labour for the prisoners was to dig a well.

Now with it’s opening covered for safety reasons, the well still has fresh water at its base.

There are other exhibits from way back then. And no! I did not get myself sentenced to these!

What is your take on the multi-meaning word “Well”?

Next week, the subject will be, from Deb, “AGE”
