Antiques 2

Once I got to Berry I realised how restricting this challenge was going to be ... I don't usually photograph to order, preferring to snap away and let what comes out tell the story.

Problem number 1 ... there is only one rather small Antique shop in Berry unlike the eclectic mix in Berrima.


  1. I often find it hard to tell the difference between antique shops and junk shops!

    I dont know what specific story I have until I pour over my shots when I get home! I too would find it hard to follow a formula. Although this time, I had enough self-knowledge to be able to dump about 50 shots each evening because I simply knew I would never find a use for them. That still left over 700 though ....

The filmy veil of greenness

We crossed the border into Victoria cruising down a lovely timbered road before breaking into the rich dairy country of Gippsland. It is wonderful to see the land green after more than 10 years of very dry weather. But most of the state of Victoria is still drought declared.

The Pasture by Robert Frost
"I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too.

I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too."

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.
