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)

Melbourne's Special Bumble Bee

Trams are a bright and colourful feature of the Melbourne streetscape!
This one is travelling along Swanston Street.
Melbourne's trams emerged in 1885.

Gemma I can't find your shadow shot but I love seeing this gorgeous tram ! The ones I have seen in Europe are usually so dull and mundane .. this is something to make you smile about though!
great shot .. glad I have seen this : )
