Images and Words Week #113: Independence

 

Welcome to Images & Words.

Our Guest Host Wayne has chosen Independence for this weeks Theme

We in Australia celebrate Australia Day on January the 26th and unlike many other countries our country still remains under the Commonwealth.

Officially known as The Commonwealth of Australia,

 

I have chosen words from our National Anthem and my vision for my country is that we always Remain Young Spirited and Free.

I loved this particular quote

“Don't worry about the world coming to an end today.

It is already tomorrow in Australia.”

 Charles M Schulz

  7. Truly wonderful composition! love the reflected flag in the waves. Beautiful shot with the free-flying birds over the peaceful beach.

    Indeed, some Swedes would do well to learn from other countries. Pride in one's country and heritage is frowned upon here, stupidly enough.

  13. God, Milli, I Love the Ausssie anthem!

    Why not grab a YouTube rendition and drop it into your post>
    Someone (fancy not remembering who!)put up Elvis singing America the Beautiful and its' Great!

    Might now take my own advice and find (if at all possible, our anthem being such a dirge) a clip or God of Natiosn (cringe)
