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)

Blurring into Shadows

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Strange old structure at the front of a Red Hill property, Mornington Peninsula
Shadow Shot Sunday #57

Like a water tank
Like a turreted castle
Crumbling memory

What an interesting structure. It certainly does resemble a castle. Is it the remnants of one?

Sylvia K said...

That really is an fascinating building and I agree it looks like a castle. Whatever it is, you got a great shadow shot! Love your words, they're haunting and beautiful.

Finally home from work...I'm pooped, but had to check your shadow out and what an interesting little structure, evokes all kinds of mystery and magic...makes you wonder what spirits live there still and what childish imagination would build such a structure.

Wouldn't it have been fun as a child to be the princess of this keep, imagine the beautiful ponies we would have ridden all 'round the grounds...

Always the child at heart, how 'bout you friend.

What a cool structure - curiosity has gotten us though...we'd have to explore - love the lamp post there interesting!

Hey Harriet said...

What a funny little discovery. The building looks like it is on the verge of collapsing judging by the tilt of it. Unless you've tricked me and took the photo at an odd angle! It's a wonderfully unusual shadow shot Gemma! :)

The magic lamppost
casts its shadow and revives
crumbling foundations.

There's a lamppost and crumbling structure. Must be Cair Paravel!

It almost looks like a small replica of a castle turret. Great shadows!
