Re: Faux Rustic

Good timing (again) Walter. The light skimming the slabs gives them an attractive silvery sheen. And the slight skewness of the slabs plays well with the unbending linearity of the corrugated.
There can't be too many slab huts left given the ravages of fire and termites. Is this one at Fagan Park?

Re: Mound Of Diamonds

How poignant! Order and disorder, permanence and dissolution, light and shade, and all this at Rookwood Necropolis. Walter you have made a photographic elegy.

Re: Havoc And Regeneration

I'll second John Power's comment. It's easy to find sunlight playing in the tops of trees but when it skips across the forest floor the alert and well equipped photographer can make visual magic. Good one, Walter.

Re: Warneet Boat

Persil? Rinso? Ah, Walter and Mick , you city guys had it easy. I remember the days of shaving yellow laundry soap into a copper of boiling water sitting on top of a wood fire in the back yard. Everything got boiled, stirred, rinsed (blue), wrung, and then pegged onto long lines held up in the sunli...

Re: Valleys and Dam

Good one Mick considering nearly everything was against you: top of a hill on a windy day, longer than normal lens with more bellows in the breeze, fast shutter speed and limited stop-down for front to back sharpness, and an orange filter(2 stops?) to slow things down even more. Hurry up and learn G...

Re: In Praise Of Polaroid P/N 55

Walter , you caught the Aberdare Hotel at its best and brightest. The poor old thing has been closed since 2016 for renovations and the work remains incomplete. Polaroid P/N 55 was always a love/hate experience. Why oh why couldn't the technology deliver a good positive AND a good negative, not one...

Re: Macksville Streetscape & House Of Mixed References

What a striking facade at 32 Wallace Street, Macksville. The property itself has been converted into units with an attached shop. According to real estate pictures the interior shows some ungracious refurbishments including the worst wallpaper I've ever seen. Sold last year for $320 000, now asking ...

Re: Well Deserved Retirement

Walter , that's a lot of interesting metallic textures. Apart from some trees nicked in a the top and a few weeds at the bottom it's all iron, rusty, shiny, and corrugated. I never realised locomotive 1308 was so worthy of study both famous and also tragic. Planned restoration apparently never happ...
