Looking in..and out.....!.....


One of the installations that I wanted to see since reading about the hand made poppies was 'From War to Remembrance' created by Hamish and Samantha from Smash Creations, each poppy and grass blade was individually crafted and if you pull in the second shot close enough you can just make out the words that originate from the Ode of Remembrance, what patience! On display in the foyer of the State Library this exhibition focuses on the history of the RSL in WA and it's role in the community and will be there until the end of June. The three points of the poppy represent reflection, movement and formation and just in case you get the yen to make a poppy of your own here's how.  Hope your week is going well, happy Wednesday take care and stay safe.....

  4. What a lovely way to remember, and wonderful captures! Love the reflections in the top and perspective in the bottom. I didn't realize the pretty poppies were so easy to make, I must try it despite my many thumbs:)

  6. Funny, creative and eye catching, but I am always suspicious when an alleged work of art needs a long explanation...

  14. I have NO patience.

    I clicked on your link. Fascinating debate about condemn/contemn. Once the word is singled out for contemplation, I realize that I don't really know what the phrase was intended to convey.
