The sister's feet


Anyone who is familiar with the Blue Mountains will know the Three Sister's rock formation is our icon image. Pondering on today's theme of feet I wondered what the Three Sister's feet looked like and dug back through my images to find out.

The image below is the one you will see on postcards, we don't usually bother with what is at the foot of the rocks.

Words to walk with:
I was scratching my head to recall any poems about feet then remembered this one.
Lines and Squares by A.A. Milne
"Whenever I walk in a London street,
I'm ever so careful to watch my feet;
And I keep in the squares,
And the masses of bears,
Who wait at the corners all ready to eat
The sillies who tread on the lines of the street
Go back to their lairs,
And I say to them, "Bears,
Just look how I'm walking in all the squares!"

And the little bears growl to each other, "He's mine,
As soon as he's silly and steps on a line."
And some of the bigger bears try to pretend
That they came round the corner to look for a friend;
And they try to pretend that nobody cares
Whether you walk on the lines or squares.
But only the sillies believe their talk;
It's ever so portant how you walk.
And it's ever so jolly to call out, "Bears,
Just watch me walking in all the squares!"

  1. I nearly had foot of the mountain, but I think I couldn't get mountain feet in one image. Very original and beautiful choice.

  3. So in keeping with your BM blog locale, JE. And you are right: the feet are generally cut off in the iconic images that are presented to us. I had forgotten all about that little poetic gem!!

  10. Showing this perspective with the dark flat mountain in the background adds a lot too, I think, compared to the 'postcard' version.
