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)

Within Reflections

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Glass doors on our new Performing Arts Centre created interesting reflections.
Figures just inside the doors seemed to become part of the outdoor landscape!
Weekend Reflections #72

Like magical glass
Like double realities
Outer and inner

Weekend Reflections #72...You are an amazing poet writing through the lens of your camera as well as with your words. The ghostly effect of this photograph is wonderfully mesmerizing!

Thank you for visiting my site, not so much that you came to read my poetry (I am honored) but that you left this amazing footprint that I was able to follow and thus find your remarkable site!

I have wandered somewhat aimlessly through the woven fabric of your photography and like a kid (okay, an old man) in a candy store I must reluctantly leave for awhile...but you have made me hungry for more and I will rattle your doors again! You~your photography, your words~you are blessed my friend.

The loneliness of your childhood is reflected in the 'Reflections'and hidden in the 'Paradox of Shadows'...You are richly blessed because you learned to be alone.

Thank you, ten thousand times, thank you for sharing your site.
As Arnold said, "I'll be back!"

Great reflection. Love the idea of inner and outer realities at a performing art centre.

The others have said it so well, but it is the inner and outer reflections/realities that are so perfect for the theater! Marvelous capture and your lovely words are perfect as always. Have a lovely weekend, Gemma!

That's a funny one... I like the way people inside are barely visible, with the reflection of the town in the display...
