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)

Dark Art

Art critic John Ruskin features.

Capture some blind light
Quench a thirst for the arty
John Ruskin watches

NOTE: Apologies that I did not post last week.
Painkillers for my broken arm tend to make me a little vague and forgetful.
So I have combined the two prompts!

Beyond Ordinary...


A doctor's carpark is usually a rather ordinary place.
But eerie winter afternoon sunlight created a soft and special atmosphere.

Real Estate Butterfly


This real estate sign is in Rosebud, Mornington Peninsula.
Not often do you find a real estate selling more spiritual ideas.
The butterfly is often a symbol of eternal life.

Real estate signage
A breath of a butterfly
A breath of fresh air

A man who was proud of his clout
And loved to holler and shout
Drew a bow one too many
And lost his last penny
So now touts the grace of a lout.
