Grit ….

Yesterday I showed the grittiness of my inner city neighbourhood. Today I am showing grit, in the classical sense of the word  – the dry dust particles of the Australian outback.

Some may think the two environments display similar inhospitableness!

I took these photos in the Northern Territory during my trip in July.

  1. I enjoyed this.
    At first I was thinking that Oz would be safer than D.C., but thinking of all the critters that are hiding beneath the rocks and stuff…maybe not so much.

  2. It is a bit like that isn't it – and the names of plants can sound just as alien …mulga, spinifex, mullamulla, desert nardoo and andamooka just to start with.

  3. Thank you. It is quite a contrast of where I came from to where I am now! Where I grew up barbed wire was around paddocks and didn't have razors embedded in it!

  4. Thank you. I'm sure it would feel spooky to be lost out there rather than comforting – but the photos give a good sense of space which might feel comforting to us squashed in the city! 🙂

  5. LOL!! The astro-dweeb is always telling me how the deadly creatures here are big and "manly" – like a grizzly bear or mountain lion – and how much he would hate to be killed by some smidgeon in Oz. It would be a personal affront to his masculinity. 🙂

  6. Thank you. They are sort of invigorating … but then that is said by someone with a bottle of water at her side!! I agree about feeling as though there is a story in each photo.
