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)

I love the lamp statue; it's very appealing. You did a great job photographing it too.

Love the light and shadow in this one and the sense of past.

A lovely staue Gemma. A bit unusual to find her by a café table!

Statuesque! Okay, I think she makes a much more interesting lamp then a regular lamp. Great photo!
