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)

F is for Figures

Figures around the streets of Melbourne
The lady in gold was celebrating the tennis season.

Collection of souls
Some figures from yesterday
One breathing gold

Amazingly to stand their quietly for so long. Nice statues. I would love to go to Melbourne one day. It's not to far from us

I'm always impressed by the memorial statues one can find in a city. So easy to just walk by them. Your photos help us to stop and really observe them.

Sorry to be so late in my visit!

I know I'd never make it as a 'statue'! I'd ave to excuse myself to go to the 'little girl's room'!

Catching up on ABC Wednesday. Thank you for the visit! :-) Is that gold woman a living statue? Very cool!
