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)

B is for Busy

Busy, bustling Melbourne Swanston Street.
It is busy with different modes of transport, people walking and a swirling mix of light and shadow on a summer's day!

Busy urban pace
Colourful sense of movement
A form of lifestyle
