Slap It In

Part of the talents of being Australian is the innate ability to be able to repair things on the fly in a somewhat ad hoc manner.  Be it a pair of pantyhose for a fan belt in your car, a bit of fencing wire to fix a fuse on your house, or in the case of this photo, cutting down a power pole to prop up your verandah…

…uh yeah.

Lynton Ruins pt 1

Lynton Convict Depot was, as the very name suggests, a holding station for convict labour where local farmers or business owners could come to ‘hire’ convict labour.  Open for only four years due to the harsh conditions, it is one of the finest example of convict area Western Australian buildings still in tact in a regional area.

Port Gregory

There’s something so wonderfully optimistic and maybe naive about the single metal signs on the fringes of rural towns extolling their virtues.  Port Gregory’s is no different, telling you all about trading hours at the local store and about the CWA and local tennis club.

Faded, rusting, you can’t but wonder what it was like when the sign was first put up.
