This statue/sculpture is at the entrance to Tully – the officially wettest town in Australia.

The photo shows two things, firstly the gumboot and secondly, the fact that the sun does shine there sometimes. I have had to wait a while for it though.

The plaque in front of the gumboot says:

“The height of the gumboot represents the amount of rainfall recorded in Tully in July in the year 1950 – 79 meters – The Australian record "

Tully is in Far North Queensland, Australia.

This photo was taken with a Canon 20D SLR

My practical painting tutors include people from the Flying Art School (1978 to 1981), the Studio West End (2004 to 2010) and the Brisbane Institute of Art (2008 to 2011).

I began printmaking in 2004 at the Studio West End, then started again there in 2006.I have done it constantly since 2006 at either the Studio West End or the Brisbane Institute of Art.

Darkroom techniques were obtained from the Brisbane Institute of Art beginning in 2009.

    This giant boot reminds me of Canadian giants. In my home province of New Brunswick they have a giant lobster, giant potatoe and the world’s largest double-bladed axe! LOL

  • These giant things seem to be springing up everywhere.

    There is a gigantic cassowary at the shopping centre near where I am living at the moment. I hope I can get a photo of it before I go back to Brisbane on the weekend.

    I’ve seen all sorts of other giants over the years including a giant banana and a giant pineapple. They can be fun – especially if they are big enough for you to climb up inside them. The giant pineapple used to be a real tourist attraction for that reason.
