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)

autumn sky glows...


autumn late afternoon skies over the Dromana Hills...


soft brightness
autumn shines on
the close of day

sign and a plant...


This sign seems a little odd...or at least oddly placed...
It is obscured by the plant significantly...
The sign is on a wall of The Nepean
- a new block of units in Dromana overlooking Port Phillip Bay...


a shy, obscured sign
perhaps inviting
a closer look

remembering summer days...


it seems but a short time again, these were the sunny days tempting some time at Dromana beach...
Now there are endless winds, rain and cold...


was it yesterday
when beach worlds seemed
so inviting

perceptions...


my neighbour's washing and shadows...
I thought the middle shadow looked a little like a drooping flag on flag pole...


shadows
oddly reinvent
perceived shapes

signs of distress...


one of the finalists in the recent 2016 Montalto Sculpture Competition at Red Hill...
This one is called 'Evidence' by Julie Collins and Derek John...
The upside down trees represent an environment in distress...


signs of distress
overturned life
squeezed dry
