Two textures of life in Australia

an experience of everyday life

Two types of living. Two types of experience: sun-warmed urban brick set amid Banjo Patteson's 'rush and nervous haste' of sunburnt antipodean suburban sprawl. Miles away, a sun-dried dam-bed absent of water during perpetual drought.
