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 Silent World

Side view of old Coolart homestead at Somers

A silent world
Silent windows and doors
Lives long since vanished

Weekend in Black and White

Tis was definitely a beautiful home in its day. So sad it is empty. All of the architectural bits are lovely. I cannot wonder about the stories its walls have to tell of families and days gone by. Such a pretty shot. genie
