International Women's Day 2018

AIATSIS International Women's Day Poster 2018

Happy International Women's Day. But also, I really like the portrait of the young woman, above.

The Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) describes this wonderful portrait this way:
The woman featured in this image remains unknown, but AIATSIS exists to help keep Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and culture strong. The woman is not forgotten and on this International Women’s Day we wanted to pay our respects to women like her. Her image is now spread around the country in a statement about the power of women – Because of Her, we can!

Speed Bump

School bell at the Winton State School in the Queensland Outback
Sigma 24-105mm, f/4.0 with MC-11 Mount Converter.

My Bride grew up in the outback and did the Radio School of the Air
for her early years, but then attended the Winton State School
while boarding at the Country Women's Association Hostel.

I didn't post in February. My apologies. I have a medical speed bump that will put me on the sidelines for about three months.

I'll try for an occasional post during the time, but I can't make any promises.

See you soon.
