July casts a long shadow – Winter in the national capital (Canberra, Australia).
Contrary to photographic evidence, I spend much of the month hiding in my home or in my head. The disaster that is Covid-19 grips the nation. Covid-free Australian states shut their borders against those states battling virus spot fires or a full-on raging inferno. I’m all for border closures. Virus afflicted states are going to need all the help they can get from other states to subdue this contagion. Hate, bigotry and ignorance also corrode the social fabric. This too we can overcome provided we have the will to work together.
Winter sun sets on Tidbinbilla, site of summer’s last stand.
Long shadows illuminate life’s uncertainties.
The loop road marks the division.
Tensions flare and we ready ourselves to defend our territory against interlopers,
real and imaginary. Perhaps it will be war?
Over resources and prime territory? Or maybe over egos?
Huginn and Muninn do Odin’s work. Or so we are told.
We are on high alert.
The debate rages.
Abandon the old?
Turn over a new leaf?
Colours emerge from the shadows.
But stormy days ahead.
This is my response to The Changing Seasons – July 2020 photo challenge hosted by the lovely Su at Zimmerbitch. Obviously, I would never kill two birds with one stone, nevertheless I am also joining in with the Lens-Artists Weekly Photo Challenge – Winter.
