An Aussie "Frog and Toad" ~ Cootamundra NSW by 

“Frog and Toad” is an Australian colloquialism (or Strine) for “road” (as “Trouble and Strife” is for “wife” … and “billy lids” is for “kids” … and so on!). This shot is being uploaded for the Frog and Toad Challenge in the Australian Travel Photography & Writing Group.

Taken at Cootamundra (NSW, Australia) on a misty morning last week.

I suffer from viewfinder vision (find myself visualising a frame around everything I see) so my genre is “anything that moves and most things that don’t”!!

I don’t so much wish to document places and things, as to evoke feeling and emotion.

This leads to a diverse portfolio and constantly overloaded external hard drives…not to mention some burning of the midnight oil as I keep looking for that elusive perfect process for yet another ‘masterpiece’!!!

    I think your Frog and toad is great, well done Rosalie..

  • :)) I must confess we don’t hear the old ‘Strine’ phrases much any more – shame – made for some very colourful (and confusing) conversations in days gone by! Thanks Jase
