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)

Secret Magic

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ A little pottery home that we use to hold candlelight outdoors.
Weekend in Black and White

Like secret peepholes
An open door to secret light
Fragment of magic

I like this Gemma. Once, back in my college days, I tried to make something like this, but my tutor didn't really approve. In fairness, I think my design was too complex, and simplicity works best.

What a neat idea! A good one for B/W weekend!
