This week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is to post examples of foreign. I haven’t been in a foreign country as an adult, so my examples are a different kind of foreign.
“The past is a foreign country; they do things differently there.” L.P. Hartley
These high-school-age young ladies in elegant antebellum costumes were selected as Dogwood Trail Court Maids and festival ambassadors. Their colorful costumes look foreign next to people dressed in today’s casual styles. They definitely dressed differently in the past!
The work involved in making these stone fence posts without current machinery is a foreign concept to fence post manufacturing now. Imagine how long it took to build a fence in the Kansas prairie! If you look closely you can see the fossil shells mentioned in the sign.
We saw this car parked along a side street, or at least I think it’s a car. It might be a fancy golf cart. Either way, the design is foreign to me.
Here’s a couple of foreign quotes to finish off this week’s challenge:
“So the gentle poet’s name
To foreign parts is blown by fame;
Seek him in his native town,
He is hidden and unknown.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Men like women who write. Even though they don’t say so.
A writer is a foreign country.” Marguerite Duras
