The Diva's Weekly Challenge #124

Sympathising, empathising.......

Every summer we go through similar disasters - the north of Australia floods and the south burns. Many of these regular massive bush fires occur just outside Melbourne, where I live. Periodically black smoke covers the city and we smell the burning.
My piece for The Diva's challenge this week is in flames.


Эта работа для The Diva's Weekly Challenge #124. Хозяйка блога пишет о наводнении в Калгари, Канада - город, где она родилась. Её зентенгл посвящён этому бедствию. У нас такие катастрофы каждое лето - север Австралии в наводнениях, юг в пожарах. Многие массовые пожары происходят вокруг Мельбурна, где мы живём. Периодически чёрный дым закрывает небо и в воздухе угар.
Мой зентенгл весь в пламени.


This is what the sky looks like
Вот так выглядит небо

    1. Да, страшно. Мы уже давно привыкли (я вообще выросла с этим). Сам Мельбурн не горит, но вокруг - беда. Самое интересное - те люди, которые строят себе дома в опасных местах, знают на что идут. Они предпочитают защищать свои дома каждый раз, даже перестраивать если нужно и отказываются переезжать жить в безопасные места.

  9. I'm learning so much about the world through these challenges... I about fires and drought in Australia last year, but hadn't heard about anything this year, so thanks for sharing. Your tile is very reflective of fire, and your before and after tiles are very telling. My thoughts are with you - keep safe.
