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)

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ This sign is in my neighbour's front window.
It was made for them.
The letters are actually an anagram of the world in which we live on the Mornington Peninsula.
It's an anagram of our seaside town DROMANA.
(Their Siamese cat just happened to be there when I took the photo!)
Signs, Signs meme

Unique kind of sign
No drama in Dromana
Positive motto

I thought it was the cat's name! :)

That is so cool Gemma! I love anagrams -- and I would definitely consider 'no drama' a positive state to be in! (From reading your blog, it definitely seems like Dromana is a positive state to be in as well!)

that's a fab sign. cat's life is full of drama, though.

That is a great sign, but the cat really makes this shot complete!

What a cool sign! I love the clever and intuitive. I definitely think that beautiful cat adds a lot to the window. Nice capture.

Joy said...

Very theatrical:-) A cat that always likes to be centre stage. I've run out of puns now, aren't you glad, great sign.
