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)

Function Beyond Function

Function of headlights
Clarifying night vision
Car's necessity

Function of macro
Photography with insight
Unexpected art

Linking to:
Sensational Haiku Wednesday
