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)

Maison Blanche

This is a side of a home - on a corner block -  at Moorabbin, an inner suburb of Melbourne.
I loved the play of dark shadow shapes on the white.
And the name of the place translates as White Home.

black and white play time
like a competitive dance
of fun yin and yang

This looks like a comfortable house ... and you know, actually "maison blanche" means "white house" ;-)

Makes for a very monochromatic image even if it isn't!
