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)

Small But Big

Units overlooking Safety Beach on the Mornington Peninsula

Like narrow boxes
Like fragments of a lifestyle
But wonderful views

I'd love to live in a box by the sea - in Australia!

Unless you're rich, you take the wonderful but fragmentary views afforded by the narrow boxes!

a very crisp shadow shot - lovely stark colours.. said...

Very nice a shadow shot yes!

Ralph said...

This house sits narrowly on its lot, but that downside is offset dramatically from the panoramic ocean views from the upstairs veranda. A fair tradeoff I'd say!

Simple in all ways but so vibrant in her way.

Hope you will visit me too as I was away for 2 months.

Missed all your players.

Greetings from a chilly Stockhol,

Lovely Haiku, and I imagine the views offset the spartan living quarters. Nice shadows, too
