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)

Layers of South Yarra Blues

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Recently, I was travelling on a train.
This is South Yarra station in Melbourne.
The photo through the train window captured the partial reflection of my blue train and picked up the lights inside the carriage as streaks across the view.
The whole effect created an interesting interpretation of reality.
