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)

I do like 'window' shopping at any and all outdoor retail purveyors - like at street fairs, the many handcrafted wares that one cannot find in a store is what we look for - goods not only made with care, but with love as well. Nice retail shopping shadows!

and here we are having temps in the high 90's up to 102! Enjoy your day!

Love the street markets and what great shadows for the day, Gemma!! Hope your weekend is going well!!

This is when images from the southern hemisphere can jar my senses-it's sweltering hot right now and looking at folks in heavy jackets just doesn't seem right! Love that marketplace though.

And you said, "WINTER"? That is not fair, mate?

We are in the middle of summer but, I guess OZ is warmer, reckon?

Happy SSS2...

While we are sweltering in the U.S., it seems odd to see people bundled against the chill! ;)

We'd never have open-air markets during winter here in Indiana. Yours looks quite delightful.

I find it interesting that you have Garfield (drawn by a local artist) on your sidebar! I have my own personal Garfield drawing signed by Jim Davis; a student's dad was a cartoonist for Mr. Davis.
