Sepia Saturday 193: Splendid Isolation

Sepia Sat 193This week’s Sepia Saturday image took me back to the days when my Dad and I used to go fishing off Magnetic Island. Not quite alone and isolated but a sense of being cut off from the world…as evidenced by the fact I have no photos.

Splendid isolation or not

My image, on the other hand, couldn’t be further from the sea and a boat but it reveals the same sense of isolation: a woman, her dog and her horse in the bush, mustering. Until you pay close attention to the photo. I’m not sure, but I think she’s checking her mobile phone! So perhaps not quite so isolated after all, though I’m sure there are plenty of times away from mobile range when she’s out mustering. And just to show images can lie, off to the left is a waiting ute.
