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)

Wall Reflection

Wall at Dromana beach reflecting in a puddle after rain.

In a reflection
A beach wall looks much straighter
Than reality

Great reflection for the day, Gemma! It always amazes me where we can find reflections once we begin looking for them!! Have a lovely weekend!

Not everyone would have noticed the puddle. I think if you like photography you are always scanning the scene for something different.

Dans le caniveau
roulent mes sous
dépensés en bêtises
que j'ai photographié.

Well done !

After I looked at your shot of the curved wall with its straight reflection, I read you haiku. We were thinking the same thing, but you were able to express it so beautifully with your haiku. genie

Somehow I got an error message when I clicked to post my comment. Am assuming it is out these in lala land somewhere. What I said after I viewed this curved wall with its curved reflections, I discovered you has expressed it beautifully in your haiku. Love your writings. genie
