The Power of Orange - Helen

A few years ago my brother Malcolm, a Geologist, and some colleagues were visiting a mine site in Papua, Indonesia, when a fantastic photograph opportunity was presented. The mine scene was completely grey - grey rock heaps, grey sky, grey road, and against this background was the contrast of the men in their vivid orange vests and white hard hats. Of the hundreds (make that thousands!!) of photographs that Malcolm has taken this is the one that everyone remembers.
I intended to recreate the scene in a landscape quilt for you, Pam, but reality eventually took over.
