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)

To Be Or Not To Be...

Pic by Gemma Wiseman
Friday Flash 55

They were just venetian slats evenly dissecting a window; a round, sealed, smeared window that somehow looked disturbingly like a porthole.
The view must be a little high because she could just glimpse the top of a power pole.
And tantalising breakfast smells drifted from somewhere below.
Was this her first or last meal here?

I like this a lot. I thought the photo looked like a porthole too. Good 55.

I was a little nostalgic this week.

Stan Ski said...

Not her last, I hope. There must be so much more to discover.

John's comments said...

That's what can happen if too many shots and he up's making the breakfast before you can remember if he's a keeper. Just a fun 55 today!

Ellie said...

Great 55. A mysterious ending. I'd like to read more of this one!

PattiKen said...

Very suspenseful 55. I think john may have the solution to the mystery. Sounds like a little too much the night before.

I’m up here.

Perhaps this is just her visual feast between first and last meal. I'll have to learn more about this "55"
