I have been doing a major re-order of all my photography recently, and as such, have re-discovered a number of photo’s that I think are worth sharing with you. It’s been a useful exercise, most of my photo’s are now easier to find, and seeing I have been suffering so much with the fibromyalgia, it helps take my mind somewhere else for a little relief.
Well, enough of the gas bagging, welcome to my show !!!!
This first one is of the caretakers cottage at Portland Botanical gardens. I have a love hate relationship with this photo, as it turned out so well, but I hate how it’s postcard perfect.
This one, and the next, are at Cape Nelson Lighthouse, near Portland, Victoria. The below one is the entrance to the lighthouse tower.
I love old abandoned buildings, this old Petrol Station just got me, it’s at a small village called Merino, in SW Victoria.
Jeffreys Cordial Factory, at Casterton, Victoria, the birth place of the Kelpie breed of dog.
This is the old Portland Town Hall, with the war memorial in the foreground.
Whalers Bluff Lighthouse, in Portland, Victoria, a stout little lighthouse, because of it’s high elevation it doesn’t need to be tall, but very pretty.
Another of the abandoned buildings, there are heaps of these across Victoria, this is the Old Heywood Railway Station, in SW Victoria.
I believe this was a Lutheran Church, it is located in Heywood, and was one of my first attempts to photograph buildings at night.
A school bus shelter, with Jack as the muse, near Bessiebelle in SW Victoria. I call this “Waiting for the bus that won’t come”. There are heaps of these, sitting unused all over the place in Victoria.
Another abandoned building in SW Victoria.
Skene Woolshed near Hamilton in SW Victoria. Very impressive building, with solid bluestone walls.
This is another old woolshed, but I don’t think much wool has been clipped here for a long time, this was at a locality (not a town to be seen) called Morgiana, in SW Victoria.
This was an old settlers shack in Narrawong, Victoria, just down the hill from my parents old place.
The Exhibition Building, in Melbourne. I believe it is UNESCO listed.
Another Melbourne landmark, Flinders Street Station, with a modern Tram in front. I love the juxtaposition of this shot, modern and old, with a touch of AC/DC !!!
Another building shot in Melbourne, I loved the difference in the old and new architecture. So much more style in the old, the other is just a boring box.
This little boathouse is in a Memorial gardens in the Dandenong Ranges, east of Melbourne.
A wooden breakwater at the mouth of the Werribee River at South Werribee.
And finally, a recent one at Parronella Park.
I hope you enjoyed these shots, I will get some more up in another theme when I am in the mood.
