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)

Sporty Stripes

PhotoHunt #234 ~ Stripes

Dramatic and bold
Stripes often represent sport
Flash of energy


Pics by Gemma Wiseman ~ The stripes of a football team - Collingwood - were displayed in many front gardens when the recent grand final was played against St Kilda.

I like that sporty shed. Makes me want to know if they found siding on sale and then used the different colors creatively. Pretty darn good picture, too.
