AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Sepia Window

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ I tried a shot from my dining room. This is looking outside to my verandah. I was trying to get dimensions and tones in sepia.

I really like the 2nd shot, very shadowy. I love sepia tones, they make everything new look old and that's what I'm all about, you can almost see the rust...ha.

I told my girlfriend the other day about the cockatoos on your rail and she 'bout flipped. She has one, her name is Gretta, she is very destructive if she doesn't have lots of toys, but she sure is a beauty. She would love to travel to Australia some day, but this year they are going to Machu Picchu, how magical is that...lucky girl...someday...right!

Terrific sepia!
Not the typical subject for sepia in my own eyes. I wouldn't have thought to do it and it's wonderful.

Mine will be up later today.

Very nice. I really like the 2nd one. What attracts me about the first one is the lighting and textured look of the vase. I have a feeling if you cropped that one to portrait making the vase the focal point that vase would just pop! said...

I enjoy this meme...Love your photos..I have to get mine up..
