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)

A colourful sign for a dining experience at Mornington
(Very poor grey light on this day)

Like a red etching
An Eastern dining journey
An exotic touch

I really like this
though, at first I wasn't sure if it was soy or joy ;)

Tara said...

great sign... a sign we have to hope for in the next year...

Fonts fascinate me and the way that people use them can be so appropriate or so funny. This is quite a nice sign.

Gray skies, but what a colorful sign for the day! Great capture and words as always, Gemma!

Beautiful photo, nice design, I love soy.

I like the red scrollwork on the sign - as well as the limited use of gold. It has a very striking effect!

Each time I see the Christmas portrait of all of you friends, it puts a smile on my face. Love that shot. Hate to see Christmas come and go, because I am going to miss the photo. Really like the restaurant sign because I LOVE soy. I cook with it all the time..maybe too much to suit my husband. I just love the way it flavors the food. Nice post. genie
