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)

beyond the tap...

tap's greening with age
and a touch of rusting red
casts youthful shadow

I love your shadow shot for the day, Gemma!! What a great find!! Hope your weekend is going well! Enjoy!

Green is the color of aging for copper and brass - a rustic hue for these metals. Despite the color, the faucet still has nice tight threads so will be as functional as ever. The classic red brick offers a fine canvas for that shadow. Beauty and function pair up nicely here!

Wonderful shade on that faucet, lovely photo!

I had to open your comment box in a new window for some reason it wouldn't pop up!

The faucet shadow is just stunning! So clean and crisp!

Wonderful. I never thought of shadows as ageless, but of course they are. I love that idea!


There is a LOT of drama in this shadow composition. I really like it.

I am fascinating (as a desperated interior design) §:-) your find is one of the best treasure.

As Ralph, said, when brass and copper gets old, they will turn to green.
