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 am one of those silly Americans sho says...I am going to post the letter to you today....I LOVE seeing the RED mailbox with the POST on it. Brings back so many happy memories of my trip to England and the British Isles. The yellow and the red in this shot are especially attractive to me.

This looks very welcoming - anything to attract more snail mail!

your composition is so perfect
it focuses on the flowers yet also accentuates the red, and the lines from the building
beautiful all around :)
