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)

Transport Machines

Collage by Gemma Wiseman ~ A collection of transport machines - past and present - in our daily lives.
Most photos were taken at the Western Port Festival 2011.
The top middle photo was taken on the Nepean Highway at Anthony's Nose, Mornington Peninsula
PhotoHunt #256 ~ Machine(s)

We live with machines
Many are needed daily
Are we ruled by them
