Ailsa's travel photo challenge: Couples

For her photo challenge this week, Ailsa showed us some couples captured on camera:  a couple hand-in-hand on the beach and various other couples, human and non-human.

When my father was in the Middle East he was surrounded by men and nurses.  Mostly men.  Sometimes they were soldiers in a war;  sometimes they were larrikins.  (The Australian Oxford Dictionary’s definition of larrikin is ‘a person who acts with apparent disregard for social or political conventions’.)

These soldiers look like they’re on a roof.  Don’t tell me they’re acting as Bathsheba bathing on the roof and King David wooing her with his flute!  Well, then, they’re imitating one of history’s most famous couples.  I seem to remember that Bathsheba was beautiful…
