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)

What a terrific shadow shot for the day, Gemma, and perfect words to match, as always! Such lovely, clear, blue skies and colorful flags! Very artistic it is! Hope you're enjoying a great weekend!

This framework ha such an artistic quality! The feeling here is almost like the longitude and latitude of the earth in shadow - a cool effect!

I like that...Art demonstrates art...if they only knew what us shadow shooters were really taking pictures of!

Tell me of your Springtime and budding branches, warm breezes and brilliant sunshine...and I'll tell you of ice on the mailbox, frost on the windshield, plants withered as if the air was sucked out, fuzzy mittens and wool socks under winter shoes...ahhh, yes, it's here, not in it's completely frozen fury yet, but soon I'm afraid. It's like waiting for a bad case of the flu, you dread it and it always comes...faithfully...however, I've been lucky, for 3 years I haven't been sick, I hope this doesn't jinx me. I stay home a lot in the winter, so I'm not around a lot of sick people, like you must encounter being in the school system.

One day at a time and Netflix, gets me through it just fine and of course all my winter projects, gives ya time to slow down, of course with all them layers of clothes on, ain't nobody movin' too fast, unless it's from the car to the house in 15 degree weather, one can move really fast under those circumstances...ha!

Take care dear sister and take in a buncha that Spring for me...okay!

Biggest hugs!

This is wondderful Gemma! Not only do I love the shadows you've captured but I'm smitten with the colours! It's so happy and summery! I'd very much like to visit that Arts Centre. I don't think I've visited it on any of my trips to Melbourne! I hope you've been enjoying the weekend :)
