Hi – I am a very late starter to this challenge and I have just been through the postings and all the pages are amazing and so varied. A real delight to see. I have used masks a lot but not like these, I especially like how they mask a smaller select area and especially using a brush to mask. The ‘mama’ font I downloaded from Day 1 doesn’t have the glyphs for me, I may have to check if I downloaded the right one. My photos are from one of my West Australian trips along the coast, I love that part of the country and unfortunately with covid border closures I have not been able to spend any time there this past 12 months. These pages were a bit rushed as I have tried to catch up, I will be able to go back and ‘tidy’ them up later.
Day 2 shows a memorial to the HMAS Sydney in Geraldton WA. This ship was sunk off the West Aust coast in 1941 by a German warship disguised as a Dutch merchant ship. The whole 645 young Australians were killed. The dome pictured here is made up of 645 seagulls – one for each life lost. The wreck was only located in 2008. The granite wall has each persons name engraved and the lady is a bronze statue called “The Woman Waiting”.
