Hello to everyone, I love being in the Australian outback mainly around the northern goldflieds of Western Australia "where less is more". Have been exploring this area for the last 10 years and still never ceases to amaze me in so many ways. I wonder what it must have been like for the early prospectors and my mind wonders off just thinking about the hardships and comradery. People from far away around the globe traveled to very remote locations to find gold in the outback. I collect found metal objects from the early 1900's to make metal sclupture. This is aways very challanging because I sense the history behind some of metal objects and try to find just the right way to present them so it dose not look like a pile of rusty metal but tells a story. Warm Regards Spider52.

Yeah agree with you Caroline about the wood stove and the eyes on the back wall allow light in to see !

Looks like the hotels boiler alright must have been huge.

Thank you Caroline and Lex, Had many more shots but had to cull some, the red dirt has coloured the walls differently and makes for great shots.

Three fireplaces in one shot that's a new record for me :) Can imagine the fires going on a cold winters days, what story's they could tell!

Some of them look like what you said, but I just love the variety on metal designs.

Thanks Lex and it was well deserved trip!

Gee thanks Stuart, looked like the place where they burned things on a tray? Is that how's it done ?

Some great graveyard shots here....

Saw this 20 years ago and have a faint recollection of some interesting story about the hospital but for the life of me can't remember it....:-(

Classic. Just waiting for a film crew.
