PhotoHunt theme for the week beginning 9th February 2013 is ‘Promise’

Two completely different photos are my selection for this weeks theme that promise new beginnings.

Golden glow
The golden glow of a sunrise shows promise of the day ahead. This photo is taken from my house where I live in South Australia

Plaque in the entrance of the Alexandrina Council (South Australia) building

Powerful words and promises on the plaque at the entrance to the local council office.

Left-hand side of the plaque says:

Sincere expression of sorrow and apology to the Ngarrindjeri People.

To the Ngarrindjeri people, the Traditional owners of the land and waters within the region, the Alexandrina Council expresses sorrow and sincere regret for the suffering and injustice that you have experienced since colonisation and we share with you our feelings of shame and sorrow at the mistreatment your people have suffered.

We respect your autonomy and uniqueness of your culture. We offer our support and commitment to your determination to empower your communities in the struggle for justice, freedom and protection of your Heritage, Culture and interests within the Council area and acknowledge your right to determine your future

We commit to work with you. We acknowledge your wisdom and we commit to ensuring our actions and expressions best assist your work. We accept your frustrations at our past ways of misunderstanding you.

We are shamed to acknowledge that there is still racism within our communities. We accept that our words must match our actions and we pledge to you that we will work to remove racism and ignorance.

We will recognise your leadership, we honour your visions, and we hope for a future of working together with respect for each other.

We look forward to achieving reconciliation with justice.

We ask to walk beside you, and to stand with you to remedy the legacy of 166 years of European occupation of your land and waters and control of your lives.

The work of the Alexandrina Council will be guided by your vision of a future where reconciliation through agreement making may be possible and we may walk together.

The Alexandrina Council acknowledges the Ngarrindjeri People’s ongoing connection to the land and waters within its area and further acknowledges the Ngarrindjeri people’s continuing culture and interests therein.

Signed for and on behalf of the Alexandrina Council by the Mayor, Mr. Kym McHugh

Mr. John Coombe

Witnessed for the Ngarrindjeri People by the Rupelle of the Ngarrindjeri Tendi,

PhotoHunt theme for the week beginning 27th October 2012 is ‘Spooky’

Misty morning

It was at day-break and there was thick sea mist everywhere and I was standing out on the jetty waiting for the sunrise and heard a boat launched from the boat ramp up the channel and heard it coming along the channel and when I felt it was about the next jetty I snapped a photo. The camera flash went off and the person got a shock because he couldn’t see me on the jetty in the mist. It was very spooky.
