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)

So busy, but a part of life in any city it seems.. I hope they don't destroy the old one as they build the new.

Nice sunny skies amongst the city.

Great shot. It does look like a lot of construction is going on. I like the way the existing buildings look and a lovely sky. I also like the cranes against the sky but I can imagine how hectic it is with all that construction.

I do hope they don't spoil the old suburb. I used to shop at the Prahran market and my sister had her first house near the railway station.

Great shot! It seems to be a lot of work going on!
