Australian photography is getting a makeover with many albums being archived to make way for new content.
The albums started with pictures of early colonial and federation era dwellings, from ruins to civic buildings… in many cases the structures are well preserved in cities, towns and villages that still have an active community and some local businesses.
New albums will feature Australian Landscapes, Plants and Birds while the old buildings and ruins will be merged into one “best of” Album with content rotated each month. The focus on old buildings will remain on regional centres and old roadside stop where many buildings are derelict, in poor repair and in danger of falling over.
The introduction of “super highways” that bypass regional towns and communities has further escalated the rapid decline of many historic places. The possible upside may be that many of these places are now off the beaten track and have become time capsules of our pioneering past. In some, streetscapes have not changed much in the last 100 years or more.
Traveling in Regional and Outback Australia is still one of life’s great pleasures. The people are the friendliest on the planet, there aren’t many queues and not many Maccas either!
Many buildings are surrounded by stunning landscapes, so grab a camera and get out there, just remember to stay off the highways with their soulless “service centres”.
AUSTRALIA is an unspoilt Scenic Paradise
Over the years the collection of pictures from cities, streetscapes, beaches, nature has grown and will form the basis of a new PhotoArt Album.
In the meantime you will find more here.
