Talking 'bout Books & Shadow Shot Sunday #118

Australia is facing its first hung parliament in 70 years after a night of vote-counting failed to deliver a majority to either prime minister Julia Gillard or her challenger Tony Abbott. So what to do today? Suggest they toss a coin? Play Two-up? Go for a walk? Do some gardening? Fly around the world on computer?


Maybe just lie around in the sun being sprinkled with rainbows?
Read some books?


It's all a bit of a laugh really except that it's not funny!!
Maybe this is how the rest of the world see Australia.

So what have I decided to do? Make bread by pushing a few buttons, put the car in the sun ('cause the wind is cold and so is the house) and read the book I keep forgetting to read.

Interesting shadow shot.

The bedroom seems like a sun washed gallery with the white walls and the angular shadow intruding. A good read is the best way to pass the time...

That's really amazing to have no winner in the vote. How often does that happen? Anywhere?

The rainbow sprinkles sound so whimsical - and then there's Tess Gerritson. A good read but not whimsical. Enjoy your improvised reading conservatory.

I wonder who they will hang first? Hope it's Tony!
