Leichhardt - In the Shadow of Leaves
Dappled in light & dark; a place to watch from, think, write, make & show images
http://www.sl.nsw.gov.au/heritage/collection/8.cfmLudwig Leichhardt was a German-born explorer of Australia whose final expedition disappeared mysteriously. His name is commemorated in some places he was associated with.
The spelling causes difficulties for many, particularly the double 'h', but some drop the 'd' or the 't', and others reverse the 'ei', and of course you can get a combination of these errors in one attempt.
