12PAof2020 - January theme: Shoes

This is my take on the theme for January of shoes.  I was riding my bike down the Eastlink trail and saw a pair of converse all stars.  This was taken while I was riding with my mobile and has a nice segue into next months theme of shadows...

On this day - 26th of January

Australia day and what better thing to do than visit the Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka (MADE) near Ballarat.  This is what is left of the magnificent Eureka flag on display there.  You will note that bits are missing.  This is because the local authorities gave pieces as souvenirs to visiting (mostly British) dignitaries.  There is nothing that shows the contempt that Britain had for Australia in the early days than this,
