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)

Shadow Street Art

Melbourne street shadows

Where sun meets pavement
Transitory art evolves
Where the shadows walk

Paula Scott said...

Oooo! I love this approach! I wonder if people were wondering why you were photographing the ground? Not that any of us would be deterred by that in pursuit of our SS's!

Neat shadows - yes, art. These days we rarely see the sun in Ontario, no shadows. :))

Cool perspective here at sidewalk level.

Streetscapes are always interesting.

Love the term "transitory art."

Great Haiku.
