I came across this scene when I was in the Blue Mountains last week. It was early and I was warming to my run when I stumbled upon these children, reading. Startled, I jumped, thinking I’d disturbed them in their garden reverie. Then realising they were statues, I snapped a photo (the wonders of a ready iPhone!)
There is juxtaposition in the metal sculpture set amid the green of the azalea bushes, the feathery branches of the weeping willow and the violet of the agapanthus.
This composition reminded me of another such scene, from a favourite blog post Weekly Photo Challenge: Families, where an elderly couple is reading on a seat, pausing to discuss a point of interest. The similarity is striking, and I mused that these two were the older couple as children, in another time and place, a warmer climate (no need for their bright hats and scarves).
