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)

Nice haiku and shadow shots!

The Bard is a thinking person's writer. The scribe is immortalized in this sculpture, and his story lines stand the test of times, especially in movies. The plots today were supplied by this writer - hold up wonderfully five centuries later. Great post and shadows!

I was trying to think of a suitable quote from Shakespeare, having studied many of his plays at school ..... but I can't think of anything including shadows!!

Laura said...
