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 lovely clock tower. The shadows do play nicely together there! I really like the name Rosebud. It's one of the nicknames I call my daughter and also mother...both Roses!!
Have a good weekend please.

Oh, yes! What a lovely clock tower it is, Gemma! And what a wonderful shadow shot for the day! I, too, love the name Rosebud -- beautiful place to live -- in a rosebud! Hope your weekend is going well!

I like this tower - the angular and modern lines are bold. The leafy shadows fall upon it nicely. the blend of natural and man-made on this fine day is artistic and peaceful...

Delightful shadows on this striking (no pun intended) clock tower, Gemma.
There's a little town named Rosebud between here and Calgary. I don't know if it has a clock tower.

This looks like a very interesting location. I like that clock tower - rather unusual.

Genie said...

This is my first “modern” clock tower, and I really like it.But I think I would like any clock tower. There is something about them in Europe that I adore. They seem to be everywhere over there. Like the shadows you were able to capture. Great job. Genie

There's probably a way to tell time with those shadows should the clock ever fail to make its appointed rounds!


Hello, there, I’m your shadow,
I tag after you;
Whatever you are doing,
That is what I do.

If you should fling a football
Forty yards or more,
I’ll be right beside you,
Evening the score.

If you should flick a booger
From your stuffy nose,
I will surely do the same—
Watch how far it goes!

So, friend, be very careful
What you say and do—
Whatever you are doing,
I’ll do just as you!
