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)

New York vibrancy

Great description! Large and micro fit together and with the words 'crystal buzzing' I hear the ring of a crystal glass being teased...but in New York there is also a trace of crystal meth here and there so...good provocation!

This photo and the poetry go perfectly together. NYC is filled with large buildings with micro housing within. Its vibrancy is like nowhere else, and at night it makes me think of it as a glistening crystal masterpiece. This shot is beautiful and gives the viewer a true feel for the city.
