The whiteness of school uniforms really stood out. The government gives each child a uniform and it is up to the children to keep it clean.

I live a retired life in Tasmania, Australia. I love books, travel, animals, photography, motor biking and good friends. I indulge in all these activities with the little Travellin' Penguin who has now shared four continents with me. We love book shops, photography walks and time with friends as all our family is in USA and Canada. I enjoy visitors to my blog so hope you'll stop by.

      1. I remember seeing a doco once, about Australian wildlife photographers in a rainforest, and it showed how much was involved in setting things up and then waiting patiently, often for a very long time.

        1. Yes, I have seen shows like that. Photographers hiding all over the world in little box type structures to get that close up. If you’re on Instagram, andyparkinsonphotos has the best wildlife photos I have ever come across. Just brilliant.

          1. When you see people taking professional photos of dogs (and babies, I guess), they always use some kind of distraction item like a squeaky toy so that the dog turns around with eyes focussed on whatever it is. But wildlife photographers can’t use tricks like that, I guess. (Well, you wouldn’t want a lion to notice where you were!)

    1. I know! So much white everywhere. Probably spotted so much because of the heat. The government provides school uniforms to kids and when have we ever seen governments be practical? I think I will continue to use Wordless Wednesday for my photography. Seems a good idea at the moment.
