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)

Shadowy Zig Zags

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ My mini viewing deck above the main verandah with zig zag shadows
Shadow Shot Sunday #54

Like thin crazy lines
Like frenzied stick silhouettes
Shadowy zig zags

I'd fall flat on my face...bifocals ain't what they should be, but what a cool shot and neat haiku, it 'splains it all...if I had to walk up that every day, my eyes would be crossed and my knees black and are a brave soul!

Now back to those papers!
