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)

Blossom Shadows

I liked how the flowering tree cast a spray of shadow patterns on my neighbour's car!

Shadowed Spring blossoms
Like a tossed bride's bouquet
Summer love awaits

Does your neighbour know that you've been "prowling" around her car? :-)


I have a little shadow that always follows me;
My shadow is my best friend, as anyone can see.

No matter where my feet go, my shadow’s always there—
Except, of course, at midnight with darkness everywhere!

So many cars these days are like this, a typical silver (I know, they call it pewter). Thus, a boring auto exterior is made more interesting when leafy shadows fall upon it. Alas, the bring will return as it is driven away. So we enjoy its artistry when all is stationary...

This is so beautiful! Delicate pink flowers casting cute shadows. We're brazing ourselves for snow and freezing weather, and you have summer; lucky you! :-)

This is an absolutely stunning capture. The color against the silvery chrome of the car make for one beautiful image. I wold have been rich there beside you with my camera if I had seen an image as lovely as this. genie
