The only thing that I found that had all three aspects of this challenge was in a shopfront window down on the river. Would you claim these? They are perhaps slight more than half a circle, their dome fitting snugly into someones roof of mouth whilst the arch is formed if we could only see it from the rear.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.

  1. From the sulbime to the silly – what a great bunch of photos. The beautiful red bridge reminds me of Somerset Maugham’s book The Painted Veil – not sure why, but I think the feeling of isolation and being shrouded by a mist. And that lovely swan – now I know why they have such long necks – the better to contort into an impossible pose and still look graceful.

  3. Great photos of the arches and domes. I love architectural pictures. Nope I would not be claiming those teeth although considering what they cost I might send someone else to do it.
