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)

Shadows of Music

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ An excerpt from my CD collection.
Grunt - appearing bottom left - is a crazy Pigorian Chant from the ancient farmstead of Snouto Domoinko de Silo.
Sandra Boynton is the ipsa dixit world authority on delusionary music.

Very creative shot and the shadow color is soooo nice. It's so amazing the variety of subjects found on the Shadow Shooters. Thanks for stopping by to see my Buffalo Wallow post.

Wonderful shadows, but I do have to wonder about the Pigorian Chant. LOL

The linear jewel cases stack up like the floors on a high rise building. We love Sandra Boynton! The kids grew up with great books like Barnyard Dance and Birthday monsters. Boynton's porcine characters are always cute...

Patti said...

Hey Harriet said...

Love the soft lighting and subtle shadows! I'm betting you have a very diverse and interesting CD collection Gemma! Have a super week ahead :)

The collection on the left casts a shadow almost like piano keys - apart from the one at a different angle, which makes it all the more interesting. Lovely light in this photo.

Cool real illusions, I like that, sorta like life on this plane huh!

Boy, did I have a busy day at the shop Saturday, totally rearranging it for the holidays, least favorite time of year, but the best for profits, so it must look it's best. I'm so pooped when I get home that I don't even turn on the PC, I just sit in THAT chair, you know, the one that sucks the life outta me...ha and watch a DVD(snore)!

I have blogger friends coming Monday, so my Sunday will involve cleaning and grocery shopping, as they'll be here 4 days...4 fun-filled days of antique shopping. Theresa tries to get up here twice a year, but this is her first visit this year, can't wait, she's from Kentucky, a 6 hour drive...wish my Gemma were this close, boy could we have some wonderful talks on our American walkabout!

This has been such an unusual Autumn, very unseasonal weather patterns, warm, up into the 70' will make it to 50's, I'll relish each and every day that my nostrils don't freeze shut! Hope your spring is getting warmer for you in your unusually wet season. But soon we'll be seeing lots of beach shots as you enjoy your Aussie summer, it'll warm me ever so slightly...thanks!

Have a wonderful week dear sister over the sea, my thoughts are with you on our journeys!

Big frosty hugs!!!
