AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Musical Angel

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ A tiny figurine on my verandah looked delightful in Autumn morning light.
I am still struggling with my broken arm.
X-Rays now show that there are 2 breaks at the shoulder which explains why my arm is so heavy and useless.
This is one of the first photos I have taken with my left hand only operating the camera.
Must take photos somehow!
Shadow Shot Sunday #156

Cute little angel
How do you play your music
Such a twisted pose

So sorry about your broken arm--hope you heal quickly. It is soooo unhandy, but you seem to have figured out how to still take great photos. Take care. Mickie :)

Clytie said...

Wow, that's a pretty good shot for being one handed! It made my brain all confused trying to figure out the angle! :=}

I'm so sorry you broke your arm - my thoughts are with you!

Sylvia K said...

Oh, Gemma, I'm so sorry to hear about your broken arm and I do hope all heals quickly! Needless to say, you did a terrific job with your left hand in catching this shot for SSS! Take care!!

I had no idea about your arm - may it heal correctly! The healing in body will continue - in mind too. Yet with a plucky spirit, photos will occur. This is a stylish photo, captured under trying circumstances. And lovely! The angel may be a metaphor for the caring and healing you will experience - we pray for sooner rather than later. We all hope...

Cassie said...

Well Gemma, you did great with your left hand! Cute ShadowShot. Now about your poor arm: Get well soon. I hope you aren't having too much pain. Take care of yourself girl!

That angel has exquisite balance: feet in the air, hands on the lute!


A shadow’s a wonderful thing;
O listen! Can you hear it sing?
It tells of a time
Before there was crime—
Trust that and you’ll trust anything!

I do hope you recover quickly! No wonder you have had trouble!
Could you have someone put your camera on a tripod?
Love the little angel - shadows are great!
Take care!
