A landscape or the result of landscaping?

Many South West Victorian farms have

changed their landscape from one

which grazed sheep and cattle to one

which grows trees and is far less intensive.

A little over 100 years ago this idyllic

French landscape would have appeared

anything but idyllic as Villers Bretonneux

was in the middle of some of the

heaviest fighting of World War I.

As the sun goes down…

…near Geelong.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Castoff

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

If you cast off something,
you get rid of it because it is
no longer necessary or useful to you,
or because it is harmful to you.

~~~~~

I often wonder if fashions which are sold

in markets are last seasons cast offs.

Perhaps not a bona fide

Farmers Market however…

…these Arras (France) market images…

…are nearly the only market images…

…I possess.

Any other images…

…are of markets

…where locals are trying…

…to capture the tourist dollar.

The Arras Market was operating…

…primarily for locals…

..to purchase the necessities of life.

The Upper part of a shoe is tht part which surrounds the sides and ttop of one’s foot

At the Battle of Bullecourt allied armies

had to attack the German army which

was situated on the higher (upper) ground.

There was little or no way for allied soldiers to

gain any protection from German bullets

on these open fields.

On

ANZAC DAY

It is appropriate to feature

Flanders Field poppies.

It wasn’t until my visit to the Western Front in 2017

that I realised how prolific these poppies are.

Like wildflowers turning fields of battle, red.

Found on

the Somme Battlefields

of France.
