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)

Tiny Old Soul

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ On a recent walk around Bittern on the Mornington Peninsula, I met this dear little old lady with the sweetest smile!

A tiny old soul
Radiating warm beauty
A pleasure to meet

What a lovely and touching picture. Great photo, Gemma. Glad you liked the pansies-they are "cute" little flowers. Mickie :)

Imagine the stories this sweet soul could share! :-)

She may be an old soul, but in her long life, she knows how to enjoy it - life is precious, and another day of life is wonderful. And she knows that life is so beautiful, another day a gift and she is happy again. She has lived enough to count on enjoying what is important, like a sunny autumn day. Her smile is oh so genuine :)

she's lovely
I always thought photos of people walking away are so poignant
I love her walking shoes
she ready for a marathon

In my travels of late, I've enjoyed "shooting" people from the back. It looks as though you might enjoy the same perspective!


The seeker of ruby and red
Will not let green go to her head;
Instead she will seek
Her senses to pique
With cherry and crimson instead.
