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)

Passing Thoughts #3 ~ Voting Moments

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Dromana Primary School was my voting place.
This smiling man happily posed for his photo in front of new building operations there.
He is handing out Julia Gillard leaflets.
Passing Thoughts #3 ~ Voting Moments

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ The Labour candidate (in the dark glasses and dark suit) for our Flinders district has a little chat.

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ The Liberal candidate for Flinders (holding the seat since 2001) arrived in large style.

The cavalcade of politics is passing by
A day in the short life of an election
The seasonal fruits of campaign trails

Voting is all about impressions
Like preferred painting styles
But what do we really know about
The artist

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Other parties graced the side entrance
NOTES: Labour lady = Julia Gillard (first female PM) who ousted Prime Minister Kevin Rudd (His nephew Van Rudd is standing for the Revolutionary Socialist Party)
Liberal man = Tony Abbott
The Greens headed by Bob Brown
