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)

Playground Shadows


This children's playground at Flinders overlooks Westernport Bay.

Like snakes and ladders
A game of shadow and light
Imagination

Pls fix the display problem - otherwise we can't play the game!

Ralph said...

Wow, a parent had quite the quandary: watch the children at play or be hypnotized by the sight of the azure waters on the bay. A fun choice of views!

Playgrounds without children make me sad. :>( My pooches always want to go in that area of the park, but I save the children from licks and getting knocked down by overly loving 4-leggeds! Happy SSS2 to you Miss Gemma.

I can see myself as a child hopping and skipping around those shadows instead of climbing the equipment!
