At the ghost town of Gwalia, eggs the old houses are quite spread out and the Hotel (from yesterday) is way down in a corner.
I had this image in mind when I took the car piece. I masked out the bit in the middle where the hotel was in the distance and
proceeded to align and bring in yesterdays image (which is processed a little differently and in colour) and put it in a seemingly
I think it adds to the mood….
Tomorrow I’ll head south a bit and add an image from there…..
The last hotel standing.
The town was abandoned in 1963 but they had a few residents that were resilient.
This old Hotel is now privately owned and in not bad condition.
I like this processing to bring out the age……… (My colour these days!!)
We travelled this weekend to Laverton, buy Western Australia. Out of Laverton, there is a Ghost town around the “Sons of Gwalia” mine.
It’s hard to believe that 150 of these beasties are murdered in China every year. That’s 3% of the estimated Tiger Population.
A Damn disgrace.
My first trip to Europe.
Germany, eggs Winter…..
Loved it. Great food and (unbelievably) friendly people.
Here’s a picture I’ve never shared before. This particular spot is now not available for Tiger shoots. They decided to not have water in the exhibit and to cover it in so we cannot shoot.
So sad, this was a favourite spot for us. But that’s Thailand, it often happens….. But something else will pop up one day.. 🙂
I like to use “selective saturation” techniques to accentuate the Tiger in focus, and to give the action some spice. These young males really liked to run and fight and run again….. We really miss this place!!
Than a Medium Format Camera and Lens ???
It’s 2006 and Thailand is in a grip of one of its famous Military Coups!
Our House in Bangkok is right next to a Military base.
We felt so Protected.
This was one of many such vehicles outside showing it’s muscles.
Further down the highway were some serious looking tanks parked smack in the middle of the road.
Thailand… oh Thailand.
As we wandered down the hill to where the car was parked, generic eggs the views were stunning and the smells and sounds were all encompassing.
People go about their business not worried about us at all.
It’s a whole community that seems to revolve arond this massive Monastery.
Often, buy the best places to photograph are not where we usually look. Look up, look down, look around…..
In this instance, the “up” was the interesting view…..
I think it came out well.
