This week's inchie animal is Kangaroo...now, I do have rather a lot of kangaroo images taken both in the bush and at reserves with the children when they were young and liked getting up close and personal with these appealing animals. But, as I have used several photographs recently when making the inchies, I was reluctant to do so once again. I thought of all the ways these animals have provided images for this country, coats of arms, stamps, coins all over the place in fact. I had a little rummage through my stamp box and found an older orange kangaroo image on a halfpenny stamp, which I believe was in use during the early 1930's. Then a similar jingle through our old coin pot disclosed an old currency 1946 halfpenny. Spoiled for choice once again! I decided to make both, and decide once they were done...
Bruny Island, my favourite place on this earth to be, has a colony of albino wallabies which are a bit of a photographic drawcard for tourists and residents alike...
Today is also son number one's birthday...happy days, James!
