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)

Never thought about describing a cat as an actress, but it is true of some of them that we've had in the past. Lovely gray on gray picture. And Shadow's advice is appropriate for us all in this day of lurking cameras everywhere. (Having just got a few candid shots of myself taken by a friend while on our boat trip, I wish I had heeded that advice! Of course, you have to consider the subject matter ;>))
