I’m glad to see it. I’m thinking to myself, it’s a couple of mates having a good old talk on a sunny afternoon. To be honest with you, they look more like men than women! They’re talking about getting together.
The one on the left is Joanne, and the one on the right is Joseph. They’re talking about where they are going. They are going up in the bush to sing a song. Nobody else will be there and they’ll dance the Charleston!
The man gives his hand to the woman, but she is not looking at him. There is a strong wind blowing—their clothes are blowing. They are side by side doing some dancing, and music is playing.
It’s taking place in the backyard. It’s near the sea. Nick was there. He prepared a beautiful lunch, which he brought. The weather was a bit rough but it became beautiful and people were grateful!
They may be feeling that they don’t have much for people to listen to. They may be going somewhere else. One has dark hair and one is fair. They are together. There might be a third person taking the photo. Maybe it was Val!
They are too dressed up. They may have plans for the evening, because of the way they’re dressed. They look like they’re going to hit the town!
The only sound they could hear was themselves. We could smell a barbecue—a fresh lamb barbecue and beer.
They’d have a house they could go to because they really want to kick up their heels! Afterwards, they could … what we call … “say their prayers”. They would say three prayers, not two!
