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 Shadows and Faces


Shadows on a building in Spring Street, Melbourne


an old thoughtful face
one wanders by in the street
one is locked in stone

The face on the wall seems to have some invisible interaction with the person on the street.
Interesting shadowy moment you've captured.

Could it be that the pedestrian and the face on the wall have similar expressions, or is it just my imagination? :)

The face above seems to have a look if resignation at the pedestrians below who seem to be in a hurry to get somewhere...but unsure of that significance...at least to the wise face above. A very thoughtful capture!

The stone face does seem to be watching the walking man. A very effective shot!

Great shot! The living thoughtful face doesn't even know the other one is watching him!
