Up and Over!

Press Photograph Sydney



Fully-clothed, they climb a rope
Dangling beside the silver sea.
'Delft' in colour yet residing
Where no touch of Dutch should be!
Surely the era it's expressing
Is one from an earlier time than ours,
And the floral aspect echos
Something of Victorian flowers!
Nevertheless, the whole is cheerful,
Expressing a universal glee,
When Nature and the joy of effort
Combine in bright frivolity.
A different sort of wall here:
See tomorrow's blog for some meddling in American politics.

An interesting view of this sculpture. I think it's interesting how many of us photographed this in so many different ways.
