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)

What a perfectly cheerful yellow picture; couldn't be better for MYM -- or anytime. Just a happy combination -- yellow and the circus -- and it brings back childhood memories!

Looks like a fun place. When I was a kid the circus was a common sight. Now of days we are lucky if one comes to town.

The bold red clown is just the right complement to the bright yellow tent!


Some yellow is just the right thing
To make a sad heart start to sing;
It fills you with cheer—
Now isn’t that clear?
It’s better than any old bling!

Circus - are they a traveling circus group? If so, I'm pleasantly surprised to see they still exist in these modern times.

That's a lovely yellow tent - who couldn't resist this attention-grabbing big top?
