Beautiful capture! Well done, Marion. Like
A lovely shot, Jock, of this old house from a bygone era! That nice time of afternoon when the light is low and golden....perfect for the subject!!
For me, these old weatherboard houses are evocative of a time when people worked their whole lives for one employer, knew their workmates as much more than just nine-to-five acquaintances, and had sons, uncles, brothers or cousins working alongside them, in dangerous and dirty workplaces.
People were not just connected by their day jobs, but by their neighbours, their kids, the iffy water-supply, their wives issues, the emotional and physical bonds of fighting bushfires side by side.
Now we have information technology :-))
Well Ebi my grandmother allways told me you should learn the language of your occupying invaders.. She tried to teach me German...
The same thing is in my picture of Downtown Dallas. The small grouping of light colored buildings in the left portion of the picture is what I would see as a kid as downtown. Everything spreading out to the right from there is the new Downtown Dallas.
I am shocked Caroline,,,,,, Not
Thanks Caroline :-)- Indeed! Stuart, Derek knows everything :)
Doesn't matter....I will post it...though I wonder how a person so observant as you could have missed it ;-)
Those rails must have been extremely well attached to the sleepers. Credit to the fettlers of the day!!
