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)

Sleeping By the Sea

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Just tiny shoes peek out from the red pram turned to the shade at Dromana beach, Mornington Peninsula

Sleeping by the sea
Drifting with the salty air
Fresh dreams of a child

Gemma....I just spent the weekend with my 5 year old granddaughter so this shot is especially heart touching for me. My daily photo for today shows here with her daddy (my “baby” at a month short of 40) by our creek. This shot is my kind of picture.

There is no better place to nap, the briny air and oceanic breezes just allow us all, from young to old, to relax in the nicest way!

Lucky baby -- beautiful dreams of the ocean! No better place to nap.

I really like this image. I'm not sure if it is the red buggy or the idea of the sleeping child and contemplative mom.

Marie said...

Love the composition here. The ruby against the grey. Great.

Oh, that bright red pram! No chance of anyone missing THIS child!


A woman who always saw red,
Could not get it out of her head;
Her dreams were red-hot,
Although she was not
Exactly Miss Scarlett in bed.
