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)

I like when people really get into the spirit of the day by dressing the part.

She looks tired, but happy. An excellent candid portrait.

Excellent portrait! I like when people age naturally. They are so beautiful without botox and cosmetic operation.

David & Melanie said...

I agree with Karen...she looks like she's been working and wanted to sit and rest a bit.
Nice portrait, she's looks like a friendly person.
