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)

E is for Escalator

Escalator views at Melbourne Central

Gentle rise and fall
Guided on a slow journey
Move without moving

Cleverly done, Gemma. Great response to the challenge of E.

"moving without moving" reminds me of a photo I saw a while ago, of a 'Fitness Centre'. Out front was a staircase and beside that an escalator crowded with people going up, carrying their gym bags while the stairs were empty!
