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)

Dampened Blues

Empty waiting blues
Shining bright with loneliness
Misty silken rain

Wet Spring day! But the blue is very cheering. That bright furniture would be a help where we are now -- today is gray Fall weather.

Your blues are so sharp and bright. I love the first shot with the empty benches and tables. All the ones I see are worn wood or aged metal. These with their beautiful patio job are so inviting.

blue and wet -- here now alas it is wet and grey and cold which makes me blue.

Waiting for a sunny day when someone will want to come and sit awhile! I live the produce store.

I love the dreamy quality of the top shot, and the deep blue

the walkway in the 2nd shot is so pretty

Carmi said...

I love how saturated the blue becomes in the wet, grey light. Just delightful! We're having similar weather here today, so I think I should take a walk looking for similarly-lit fixtures. Doubt I'll find anything as compelling as this, though!

EG Wow said...

Even wet, the blue table and benches look great!

Summer said...

Love the blue of the benches!

Looks like an awesome fruit shop!!

Kathy said...

Oh, yes, those benches look soooo blue as they sit empty.

Christie, Describe Happy said...

What a pretty bright blue even through the dreary rain.

I like that deep blue and recently painted a chair the same color. And today our weather is just like yours.
