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)

Grand Old Lady

A grand old lady
Her starry days may be gone
But her style lives on

You can't ask for much more than that when you're a grand old lady!

I love this photo, and the caption is just perfect. I might have cropped out some of the roadway to focus more on that fabulous entrance (rule of thirds!), but what style it is showing, in any case. Wonderful.

Elegant, stylish and timeless. This star of any artistic medium id grand indeed. The sepia allows this to look as nice as we always remembered her...
