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)

Beautiful captures for the day, Gemma, and as always, the perfect words to match. Love the red boat and birds!

Love all the red - marvellous capture!

Happy RT2!

I like the ruby Fiat (?) on the train. The color allows the train watchers to se a stylish advertisement as it passes by. Red makes us notice!

Oh my, how Melbourne has changed! Flower boxes in the streets and fire-engine red trams and horse drawn carriages in the CBD. I guess I'm a traditionalist, I rather liked the old green and gold trams with no plastering of adds.

LadyFi said...

How bright and cheery!

Hi there - I love the reaction trams like this get from visitors when they see these trams. I don’t think they fit the stereotype of what Australia is supposed to be like.

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
