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)

Old Wheels

This couple has been a part of the annual Westernport Festival community parade for some years.
And still they draw lots of attention and admiration.
What this motorised carriage is actually named I really don't know.

Back in the parade
Keep old wheels of time turning
Proudly motoring

Great photo of a fine old horseless carriage. The women looks like she doesn't appreciate having her picture taken.

A great capture in B&W, Gemma:)

That is great ! Should be produced again, with the increasing petrol prices, it certainly would have some success !
