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)

A Child's Reflection

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ A puddle in a children's playground at Mornington created a defined reflection of surrounding shapes.
Weekend Reflections #44

No children here yet
The morning is still early
But their toys await

It's odd how the bars add a sad note to what would otherwise be a playful image. Well done.

Beverley Baird said...

Great reflections! Image if it was full of kids!
Take care!

There's lots of variety in that puddle! Wonderful find.

I like this looking through the bars!

RuneE said...

They will love that water. I can already hear the splashing.

Dani said...

Imprisoned reflections. Very cool. I like it.

Have a nice Sunday!

Great picture ! The reflection is neat, and there is quite a strange melancholia about this playground deserted behind barres... Very symbolical... Very emotional...

Thanks for the sharing !
