Its Monday morning here in Australia. Monday morning and the first day of  new month. This week’s photo challenge is BROKEN and I am going to see what happens if we do our Yaaning on the Photo Challenge Topics.

Sit down awhile and I shall take a look through my images and see what’s been broken in this last little while.

I was out on the Highway a couple of weeks back when I caught sight of a car on the median strip and another blocking the Southbound lanes. A young woman was driving one of the cars and 2 gents the other. It was a lucky accident in its own way with noone hurt too bad and neither car totally trashed. They were, however, BROKEN.  Dented and damaged and the people’s travel plans were ruined as well as their nerves.

The PACIFIC HIGHWAY is not a road I am able to be fond of or proud of. I will put some links up about it and I think it could well be described as a Broken Road.

1. Forcibly separated into two or more pieces; fractured: a broken arm; broken glass.

The Old Dog from next door is a wee bit broken down. His legs are arthritic and twisted and  he can no longer chase off the foxes. I have taken a look at the Free Dictionary Online and there are a good few dimensions to Brokenness listed there.

The first one is “Forcibly separated into two or more pieces.”

fact;

Some of us are not broke-only

cracked.
