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)

A Keyhole View

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ View through a shop window at Flinders, Mornington Peninsula
Carry on Tuesday #75 ~ This week I’ve taken a line from the movie The Italian Job:
Look, if there’s one thing I’ve learned.........

Keys fit in keyholes
Look, if there's one thing I've learned
Small glows shape big thoughts


Hosted by Keith's Ramblings
