THE MEANING OF AUTUMN

AUTUMN whispers the tones of yesterday in a minor key ~ Gemma Wiseman

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)

Do You Know What I Know?


Magpie Tales #49 ~ Picture by Willow ~ My great aunt Winnie Hanna with friends and skates (right)~ Ervin Township, Howard County, Indiana, 1905

Blurred generation
Gowned mannequins face the snow
Invisible past

But in the 1600's
Bold forebears shared adventures
Famed Three Musketeers

Love those old shots...always fun to see a piece of history. Very clear photo compared to some you get from those days.

A nice tribute to the faces of the past, with a good reference. Three Musketeers eh? Let's hope they were as good friends...it is always a wonder, as we look into these old images, to think how things were. How they might have been.

Wonderful comparison... I can definitely see these three ladies righting some wrongs in the world.

Lovely magpie,however, I can never look at an image of three females without thinking there was going to be trouble at some stage.

It is, indeed, a blurred generation I often wish I could return to for a visit.

by comparing and contrasting, we see a more clear picture of it.

Interesting. You went to the sixteen hundreds and so did I.

Wonderful! Looks like out of a movie.

I agree, there's a certain something, some secret here, in that second woman's smile especially. Nice hook up with the Three Musketeers--we all go farther back than we realize.
