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)

Parade of Red

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ St Joseph's Primary Scool paraded lots of red in the Western Port Festival parade last weekend.
Annually, this parade celebrates the community spirit of this region on the Mornington Peninsula.
This year, Hastings was celebrating 150 years of evolving on the Peninsula (hence the "150" hats on the children's heads!)

A parade of red
Happy faces brightly glow
Western Port glory

The marchers are enjoying the parade as much I'm sure as the spectators. As it should be!

The reds in this photo are unmistakable--as are the joyful faces of the children!


A seeker of scarlet, they say,
Is likely to savor the day
If painted in red
Or ruby—instead
Of shades of monotonous grey!

Red is an attractive color, it draws attention to the marchers/students under s strong summer (Oz) sun. 150 years is a wonderful milestone!

What fun for them to be in a parade. Bright red is always an "eye catcher". Nice shot.
