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)

Mailbox Shadows

Old mailboxes (for nearby farms) lined up on Arthurs Seat Road create some interesting shadow shapes.

like soldier shadows
parading an old lifestyle

What a wonderful shadow shot for the day, Gemma!! You do find such wonderful ones!! My blog problems have finally defeated me and I'm giving up, but I will continue to visit and comment! Hope you have a great weekend,

Mailboxes marching up the street! Great catch.

The mailboxes by the road are unusual rural art, lined up to receive (I hope :) greetings from the metropolis. Each box is unique, all the shadows so different - and cool shadowy art. I like the marker with the reflector - a stylish obelisk along a country road...

Sweet and lovely, these little soliders! What a nice 'find'!

Beverley Baird said...

What a great shot! Your haiku certainly describes them well.

Very cute, indeed...

I wonder íf Victoria still hot autumn days? That's amazing, while we still waiting and wishing for the sun and hot days to stay.

Happy Sunday.

Hugs from D´Box in Stockholm.

Great find, and your haiku is perfect for them. I can imagine them conversing with each other as they stand sentry duty.
