#2 Going Our Own Way

I’m joining Becky in her February Square Photo Challenge over at The Life of B. The rules of the challenge are simple: most photos must be square and fit the theme word Odd, referencing one of these definitions: different to what is usual or expected, or strange; a number of items, with one left over as a remainder when divided by two; happening or occurring infrequently and irregularly, or occasionally; separated from a usual pair or set and therefore out of place or mismatched. Look for #OddSquare.

While we didn’t travel as much as usual in 2021, we were fortunate to enjoy several holidays in our home state of Queensland and one short trip just over the border in New South Wales. Join me this month in a retrospective look at the very odd year of 2021. 

Brisbane, January 2021

It would be a reasonable expectation that a couple celebrating their wedding anniversary with a few days away would spend their special day together. But when the Queensland Cultural Centre at Southbank was hosting two exhibitions on completely different themes, it was an easy decision to go our own way for the morning.

For him, at The Gallery of Modern Art: The Motorcycle. Design, Art, Desire – an exhibition of 100 motorcycles, spanning 120 years of development and design. The exhibits came from Australian and international collections.

For her, at The Queensland Museum: I do! wedding stories from Queensland – a collection of 43 wedding ensembles spanning more than 100 years. The display included family memorabilia and personal items on loan from Queenslanders and garments and accessories from the State Collection.

While our decision to go our separate ways on our anniversary might seem strange, it shows how well we knew each other after 38 years.

And we did meet up afterwards for lunch!

    • Motorbikes aren’t really my thing and Mr ET wasn’t interested in the wedding exhibition. It made sense to go to the ones we wanted to see. We went to the big motorbike collection in the New Forest the last time we were in UK. Mr ET went in and had a lovely time. I stayed outside – there are quite a few shops and a very nice cafe so I was very happy too.
