Photo Hunt #84; I Love – – -

Grandchildren and children and their mother.   But no photographs because some of them are shy.

So I thought long and hard about other things I love.

I love the Swan River and I love my city.   I love dolphins and birds and flowers.

I finally decided to try to show a state of mind.

I love travelling. Forget from where and forget to where.

Travelling. Between far horizons

Along roads without towns. Half a mile down this road is another sign. It says “No Water Past This Point.”

I love seeing an empty road ahead with a full tank of fuel, plenty of spare tyres and lots of water on board.

Distant hills coming closer.

I love the everchanging sameness of the Australian outback.

  9. wow, what beautiful shots. So peaceful!

    As long as you are well prepared, it can be so peaceful with just the sounds of the many small finches and the wind in the spinifex.

  17. Oh Archie, I wept tears of joy as I read this. I love this too.

    I was hoping there was someone out there who had experienced and understood my passion for the emptiness of our country.

  18. That was a great choice. Seducing as anything. Must make that trip before I croak… Thanks.

    Thanks, snoopy. Just take care when you take the trip. We lose tourists every year due to lack of knowledge and preparedness.

  20. this is so beautiful… makes me want to live there…

    but then I’d be contributing to the problem. I see the open desert around Albuquerque being gobbled up by “progress” and it breaks my heart. I suppose that’s exactly why immigration is so tough in Australia.

    I FINALLY got mine up… I feel so behind everything this week :(

    It is a beautiful part of the world. Yet there is room for some people. That sign which indicates 267 Km to the Telfer mine does not mention that the next town on the road is Alice Springs – 1,600Km away!

    I’m coming to visit your photo hunt now.
