Artist's Description

(Believe it or not, but the sky really was this intense and red saturated that morning) My cheeky Aussie buddies tell me that we Yanks get our lost day back on return flight to the states for no other reason except as encouragement to head on back home where we came from and not linger too long way down south. I tell them that I’m no Yank, that I’ve lived my entire life down South (that’s Dixieland south); they simply nod their heads in pleasant Australian fashion and show me their backs all the same.

The Australian landscape’s another matter; it just fills you up inside and then when you have to go ( though you’d probably rather like to linger a few days or months longer) the land just keeps loving you all the way to the day-time zone change somewhere over the Pacific and beyond. And just before you take off, as you’re hurrying to make your international connection, the land shouts one last “G’day mate!” She does it in living color.

So here you have it, pretty much right out of the camera, just as she called it out to me. I reckon it’s her calling card; it’s never the same; looks different every time, but there’s no mistaking what she saying. You just have to turn up the volume in your heart and take the photo quick-like. She’s not one to repeat herself, I’ve found…not in the same words, never in the same way. It is in this way that she keeps it interesting, for anyone who happens to be looking, for anyone who should happen to care.

“Goodbye!” I shout it in silence. “God help me; I’ll be back.” I wipe away a tear and blame it on the red-eye flight I arrived on. She understands – I’m certain of it – even if my Australian buds don’t…she knows.
