Sunday Selections #4

This week I have had itchy writing fingers coupled with limited time at my desk, so scattered sentences have been tumbling around in my dreams, of course when I wake up all the words have gone into hiding and I haven’t had the time to hunt them down.

It has been a tumultuous week that started with driving my daughter Veronica to an early morning a radio interview and at ten pm that same night driving my son David to his friend who had left a suicide note as his facebook status and wouldn’t answer his phone. (He is alive)

Today isn’t the day to be writing about youth suicide, Invasion day and racism, the Mona museum, grief and autism and Hobart’s amazing clown doctors but the words are all there and they will make me write them out sooner rather than later.

As always I am constantly looking at the world around me in terms of light and shade and often the lines and shadows are more interesting to me than the actual objects themselves.

I took these photos inside the newly opened Mona Museum.

I take a lot of photos and most of them are just sitting around in folders on my desktop not doing anything. I thought that a dedicated post once a week would be a good way to share some of these photos that  otherwise wouldn’t be seen by anyone other than me.

I am also remarkably absent minded and I put photos into folders and think  that I will publish them later on and then then I never do.

So I thought I would start a photo meme that anyone can join in and play as well. The rules are so simple as to be virtually non existent.

Just add your name and URL to the Mr Linky. Publish your photos on your blog using the “Sunday Selection” title and link back here to me.

Easy Peasy.

    This is my favourite Selections of yours so far, I love the light and also all of the gritty textures.

    I hope your son’s friend is okay. I had someone contact me last night (a blog reader I don’t know) who was suicidal. Scary, and so sad.

    I have a picture I’m half-tempted to post, a very dark one, but I think it’s probably a bad idea.

    Hope you are doing okay and that you have a chance to write everything out when you’re ready. xx

    @ Wanderlust My son’s friend is ok. 🙂

  • Zoey @ Good Goog January 30, 2011, 1:20 pm

    I would love to visit MONA after seeing those photos!

  • river January 30, 2011, 1:36 pm

    Thank goodness the friend is okay!

    I almost used shadows myself this week, but chose a different subject.

    What is the meaning behind all those sooty books and pages hanging on a wall?

    And can you identify a bug I photographed and posted yesterday? I’ve never seen one like this before.

    Love the photos. I love museums can’t wait till I can travel and go to the many wonderful museums all over the world, first stop may be MONA.

    Love these, Kim but especially love the first one. I love stairs.
    I’m going to be running a bit late with mine for this week, sorry but it will be there.

    Hi Kim, thanks for chance to participate in something fun. I too, often look at the world in terms of light and shade, I like your photos, the first one especially. Your son’s friend sounds like a troubled young man crying out for help, I hope he gets the help he needs and finds hope enough to want to choose life over suicide. Looking forward to reading those words when they finally make you write them…

    “I am constantly looking at the world around me in terms of light and shade” that is so eloquently put and great photos as usual.
    (shocker with your son’s friend, glad he’s ok!)
    I had already decided to post “7 things” this sunday (i need at least 7 comments to do it again, you are very invited to have a look !) – the first is a photo though, too 🙂

    An abundance of textures set off with so many variants of light and shade. Very impressive Kim!

    One of our friends has just turned off his wife’s ventilator to let her go after a massive heart attack. She had been in a coma for the past 8 days. We are waiting for more news. Only in her 50s too, so sad. Surely David’s friend can find something worth living for – our lives are very precious.

    Glad to hear your son’s friend is okay 🙂
    Really liking the photo’s, too 😀 😀

  • Beet January 30, 2011, 9:43 pm

    Oooo I love your lines!

  • Avril January 31, 2011, 5:18 am

    Love the lines, light and dark! The last photo is fascinating! Glad your son’s friend is ok – a troubled soul to do such a thing 🙁

  • Jay January 31, 2011, 10:21 am

    I’m so glad the young man is OK!

    I love the pictures this week – especially that last one. It is so very lovely that I’d be very happy to have that hanging, framed, on my wall!

  • Adam January 31, 2011, 4:36 pm

    Best wishes to David’s friend. I am glad everything is alright for him. The Mona Museum looks really great, I definitely must see it one day…Hopefully sooner than later. The last picture is mesmerizing!
