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)

Behind the Mask

Microfiction Monday #48 ~ where a picture paints 140 characters, or even fewer. Susan says:
Photos will be from my own archives; illustrations are from Dover Publications' free clipart sample newsletter.

Stylish yesterdays
We may appear groomed and adorable but we are different
White gloves and black gloves
Crossed hat
I survived
(140 characters)

Hosted by Susan (Ireland) @ Stony River

Good job.

This is thought-provoking. Good versus evil? That is a theme that never ends...
Have a great week. Cheers!

Pat said...

They are dressed alike in so many ways so as not to look too "different," but their attire is different in enough ways to make them look unique...just like girls today! I like your take on this week's picture.

I love this. It's like they want to look the smae while still maintaining their individuality.

I found those white gloves/black gloves intriguing too!
