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)

Avant Garde

Avant garde of night

In 1981 the United Nations General Assembly passed a resolution declaring an International Day of Peace. In 2001, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a new resolution declaring 21 September of each year as the International Day of Peace.
Tracey at Hey Harriet gave us a beautiful reminder that this is a very special day!
So I will have this symbol on each of my postings for today!

Hello!! It's so nice to visit everyone every week! Like your shot - love how you have it black and white - then colored up in the corner - really draws your eye from the trunk up!!
Have a nice weekend!

Hey Gemma, such a cool and clever shadow shot! I love the haiku also :)

I wrote a little haiku to go with my SSS post this week but mine was kind of silly (even sillier than usual for me!) so I didn't include it. Chickened out :) Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday!

What an awesome shadow shot Gemma!
I love everything about your photo, black and white and colour. The best of both worlds! :D

Lovely words to go along with it also!

Happy Sunday to you! :)

Like the giant hand of the evening, getting ready to pull the shade...very mystical in black and white. I love haiku...simple yet powering.
