Lower Plenty: 3093/11:42:42am [Our Day]

I’m the hot wind from the desert, I’m the black soil of the plains
I’m the mountains and the valleys, I’m the drought and flooding rains
I am the rock, I am the sky, the rivers when they run
The spirit of this great land, I am Australian

We are one, but we are many
And from all the lands on earth we come
We share a dream and sing with one voice:
I am, you are, we are Australian
I am, you are, we are Australian.

~Bruce Woodley and Dobe Newton~

  6. Happy Australia Day!!! I love the colors, how the flag is poking out of the back window and the play of the shadows. Beautiful!

  7. Wow, I LOVED reading those lyrics! Made me all puffy!!! What a great photo, is that your car? It’s cool. Where is Lower Plenty? (Ahem) … is it a place that I should know about? It sounds familiar. Thank you so much for your kind words to me, totally appreciate it. XOXOX

  8. Happy Australia Day! A nice photographic tribute…

  9. One day I will, I WILL visit Australia again. I had one holiday there 16 years ago, and I have never remembered a place so clearly as I remember Australia. We pootled about NSW, so I never saw the desert. Must remedy that.

    Also, have never been so bitten/ menaced by so many poisonous things in my entire life. Jellyfish, ants, snakes, spiders, oh my. (I loved it. It was so COOL, finding electric blue jelly-fish all over the beach, like a burst glass bead necklace).

  10. Happy Belated Australia Day! Very colourful indeed…I like!

  11. DIdn’t I comment? My apologies. Belated happy Aus day,

    xx
