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)

connectors...


a hubcap on a wheel of a car parked at Tyabb...
I was interested in this one because I have not seen those extra tear-drop shaped connectors on a hubcap before...
In the original photo they were yellow, so quite noticeable...


connectors
small and unpretentious but
vital
