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)

power of easter...


I know that this photo looks a little strange.
At the time, I was sitting in a train carriage and saw the sign of Happy Easter outside on the waiting bus.
In spite of the graffiti on the train window and the barrier beyond
and the limited view of the bus,
I wanted that sign.


easter and christmas
cut through and shine through
the clutter of life

Perfectly brilliant post. -- Great how you tied your words in with the picture just as you saw it. True and so much better than trying to crop the pic to just show the Easter part.

I understand why you wanted to capture it, calling by from the signs meme today.

This is nice to see. There are some municipalities that are fearful of lawsuits if they advertise blessing to one religious holiday. It has happened by some who are far too easily offended.
