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)

Shadowed lonely swing
Like an empty kind of joy
Waiting for a child

This shot brings back so many memories of playing with the grandchildren. These type plastic swings were not around back in my day. The shadows are beautiful. Such a quite, inviting picture. G

A beautiful photo, Gemma. I just want to pick up a baby and put her in that swing!
