Old cars


Regular readers will know that I am rather partial to old car wrecks.  I found an amazing car yard in the sleeping town of Terowie.  This is but a sample.

  1. Wah, I am jealous! In Germany these car yards don't exist (in contrast to other European countries). I recognise the Fords - but not one of the other models.

  2. I reckon they should make a museum out of that car yard. It's a slice of Australian history!

    not sure if I'm seeing right, but the car's rego in the middle picture seems to read "RIP 146" !!

  4. Martina, I am not much across car models so am unable to assist.

    Winam, I agree it is a slice of Australian history. A lot of the town is historically preserved, perhaps this car yard too.

    Susan, well spotted! But a closer look at the full resolution photo reveals it to be RJP 146,

  9. The first thing I thought was that someone here in America would snatch these up and restore them. Although battered and broken they still looked beautiful.

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.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

And I wrap up this trip with the Royal Hotel at Ganman.

A stark white forest

Actually the poem says "The stark white ring-barked forests, all tragic to the moon" but this white snow gum forest is not ring-barked, nor is it their normal healthy white ... this is the result of the bushfires that swept through the region in 2003. They are reshooting from the base and will recover but it will be a slow process.

At this altitude snow gums grow low and are usually twisted into fantastic shapes. The stuff of many awesome photographs, typically in the snow.
Musing:
From The Snow Gum by Douglas Stewart
"It is the snow-gum silently,
In noon’s blue and the silvery
Flowering of light on snow.
Performing its slow miracle
Where upon drift and icicle
Perfect lies its shadow."
