Cudal garage


I liked this set of garages, photographed in Cudal when I was taking a shot of the Royal Hotel. We passed through Cudal on our way to Manildra the home of Australia's largest flour mill. I'll show you that tomorrow.

  1. I found some sheets of tin/iron that was lovely in the back lanes of Glebe. Never did post them ... must try to find them.

    I too like this line of garages ... the peeling paint and the whole ordinariness of it ... the higgledypiggedly shapes ... weds me to the earth emotionally

  2. Well, you know how I feel about corrugated iron (is that the correct term?). It's wonderful. I photographed a building like this and I just loved working with it.

Reading

The tiny camera's tiny battery ran out so I went back to my reading. The note with the sculpture says "This bronze and copper sculpture contrasts a series of small human forms with the architectural weight of on oversize staircase. The artwork has a philosophical aspect by reflecting on the effect of reading on the spirit - 'the more I read the smaller I feel'." Crikey, I dunno about you but if reading made me feel like that I'd stop.

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.

Coolibah?

Is that a Coolibah tree beside the abandoned house? Every Australian knows about Coolibah trees because the bush ballad Waltzing Matilda is nigh on our unoffical national anthem but most of us live nowhere near the inland where they grow. Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong, Under the shade of a Coolibah tree, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me. Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me.
