Travel Theme : Walls

Ailsas from “Where’s my backpack?” has asked us to construct walls this week.

Well here is Arno, a “fair dinkum” Aussie eccentric bloke that has spent a life-time constructing this wall, his tribute to junk,  in the far away town of Winton. This iconic outback town is also home to camel races, dinosaur relics, boulder opal, a musical fence and must not forget to have a beer at the North Gregory Hotel where Banjoe Patterson first performed the famous Aussie poem “Waltzing Matilda”.

So I present to you (tongue firmly in cheek)…..

  1. Totally cool post!! Thanks for sharing!

    • Thank you for calling in and I appreciate you leaving a comment. It was a work of dedication by Arno quite amazing finding all the different things he had included in his “work of art!!!”

  2. Could be an interesting metaphor for how we could reconstruct the walls we put up to block our feelings, memories etc. … As well as being a really great piece of art, or capturing a snapshot in time. I enjoy it on lots of levels. Thanks!

    • That is a very interesting comment Denny. Yes it is a museum in a wall isn’t it? Love your idea of a metaphor…

  3. A fascinating way to make a feature from lots of junk! It must have taken him ages to build the wall too!!
