My contribution for this week’s challenge…
My Worldly Place
I decided on a ‘then’ and ‘now’ slant
Recent additions to the cement works.
Geelong Botanical Gardens
Geelong’s Eastern Beach
Cunningham Pier at dusk
An old wool store,
now refurbished to become
Cunningham pier in the back ground
and what we dubbed ‘The Sharks Teeth’
in the foreground.
Recently told they represent sails on Corio Bay.
‘The Sharks Teeth’ and Geelong’s main street.
Now the small town where I spent most of my life.
As a child these oak trees guarded
the northern entrance to our town.
In 2016 they did not seem to have grown much bigger.
A railway station not used since the late 60s.
Our Town Hall on the right.
Extreme left my first school,
recycled into a scout hall sometime in the 1960s
Our hardly ever used front door on the farm.
I loved the look of palm trees
before purchasing this house.
And where my Parents and Grand Parents
ran sheep and Cattle, I now grow trees.
