Thanks so much for looking at my work.My husband and I are travelling around Australia in our caravan and 4×4 Colorado.We visit lots of remote areas which do not have internet connection.Will catch up with my RB friends when we are on-line.
Shifty looking bugger, right enough. Probably one of me ancestors. We got sent to Canada – runs in the family, I guess! :o)
Thanks Mike. He certainly looks nasty. Myra
Looks like a wicked person Myra – wouldn’t like to have him gracing my ancestral tree….lol !Great capture.
Thanks Roy. He sure looks…shifty….wicked…nasty…menacing….the list could keep going. Mike mentioned convicts been sent to Canada. Did any end up is NZ?Myra
Convicts to NZ – very few Myra, small parties were sent from Oz and some escaped from Oz to NZ but mainly it was left to convicts like me in later years….lol ! Actually, not so far from the truth as I jumped ship in NZ, was sent home and paid my fare out two years later so I wasn’t a ten pound pom !
Thanks for your response Roy. You must have known Heather was in NZ waiting to meet you. Myra
Hi Myra! This looks like one of the tin-types they made of people just after they died. Usually criminals who were hung. Made for the newspapers.Either the poor blighter’s blind in one eye or its rolled back into his head. Looks fairly sinister! Thanks for sharing – something nightmares are made of. Good night! LOL.Ellen
Thanks Ellen. He certainly is an unsavory looking character.x Myra
LOL.I did think the same as Ellen, a dead person’s pic! I won’t want to meet him in an alleyway!
Thanks so much for your great comment. You must have had a wander around my gallery to come up with this one. Sincere thanks.Myra
