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)

Wild Number/License plate

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ A number/license plate on a car in Dromana Hub carpark, Mornington Peninsula.
(I do not know if a male or female owns this one!)
Now people in Australia may have personalised number/license plates - only needing to meet a 6 item requirement.

Either the owner is truthful or has an exaggerated sense of self importance. I hope it's the my first choice. Great job in spying it for today's post.

Francisca said...

Definitely not referring to the car! :-D

VioletSky said...

and I bet it will be some senior driving!!

GVK said...

As Andy says, the number may well belong to someone with an exaggerated sense of self-importance. And doesn't it cost a packet ?

Kim, USA said...

Hahahaha I have the same thought with VioletSky. ^_^

Someone feels the need to show off. Well spotted!

Marvin said...

Like everyone else, I wonder if truth in advertising laws apply to vanity license plates. Nice find.

Lesley said...

and it goes well with the slogan "on the move"!

Sallie (FullTimei-LIfe) said...

We see a lot of vanity plates when we road trip. Many states have that option. As with the one you show, we often wonder what kind of person would want that information out there like that (whether it's true or not ;>)!

Joy said...

Nothing like a bit of egocentricity No wonder s/he is on the move. Now I am intrigued to see the driver. Great capture.

Splendid Little Stars said...

especially funny with "Victoria on the move" following!

Good one! I never have a camera when I see a number plate like that.

Have a great weekend.

Good choice for the theme Happy weekend.

Luna Miranda said...

LOL @ VioletSky's comment
personalized plates are prohibited here. i don't know why.

YTSL said...

I'd never get caught driving a car bearing such a license plate! "O

I've wanted to get "Mudhooks" as my vanity plate but it is pretty expensive, here. My contribution is a slightly different take on the theme.
