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)

More Kites on Parade

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Another view of some unusual kite styles at the Kite Festival 2011, Rosebud, Mornington Peninsula.
(NOTE: I used a similar image for last week's 3WW.
Even though I am so fascinated by kites, especially these new designs, I promise I won't post another for next week's 3WW!)
3WW #CCXXXIII ~ dual + identical + volley

A volley of kites
Dual music of wind and wings
Identical dream

Hosted by Thom @ Three Word Wednesday
