wow great capture ginny!
Thanks. This day ,the rain just poured down, first rain for 4 months, so the mage seems a bit blurry. but I just liked the concept .Nobody bothered to move out of it.
Great capture Ginny.
thanks Cathy and Paul. the first rain in Canberra for months. I have another pic here “Canberra in the dry” on our way there, but when we arrived it just came down in a torrent I could hardly see anything and my camera although fabulous, is not really the one for long shots.there was a huge camp too, tents, etc. just off to the right . Everybody was standing out in the rain didn’t seem to bother them at all.
I love politics and art – a powerful combination!
Like the catch of the mobile home behind the demonstration, a clash of the freedom to travel that was the original issue with the old tribes moving across the land.
Many thanks clickinhistory ,it was just a lucky capture of course, but I was very pleased about it.Just a shame the rain was belting down for photography and them[the campers were looking very miserable] not the residents of the city much needed
