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)

Street Musician

Street musician in Melbourne

Music of shadows
Dappled with haunting sunlight
Waiting on your street

He has a perfect spot to play, shadows protecting from the heat...
Happy Sunday!

Great didgeridoo.

Very cool shadow-y shot.
The red shoes in the back round passing by is a nice contrast touch too, as the rest of the shot is predominately earth tones.
Artistic accident.

The musician seems to arise from the shadows on the sidewalk as we walk our normal route through the city. If he did not play we might miss his presence...his music opens our minds with musical art which enhances our day-to-day moves...a n unexpected treat!

Hi Gemma,

Didgeridoo music instrument is one of the oldest instrument in our history. The street musician seems to handle it carefully.

Very sharp shadows and that means, Victoria have a ball of sunny summer days.

Happy SSS2,

Beautifully captured. Street musicians add such character to a city. Wish we had some here.

I love these guys (although I've never seen one playing a didgeridoo!)... whenever we're in a city where there street entertainers I always stop to listen and I always lose my husband who isn't quite as fascinated!

Loved the haiku!

edenhills said...

This is a great shot! It's so different from any street musician you would find in my area.
