Point Lonsdale lighthouse.
And a favourite from
a container storing a selection of objects chosen
as being typical of the present time,
buried for discovery in the future.
Active during the gold rush era…
…the now unused Steiglitz Courthouse
is now aa time capsule in its own right.
I would have been more than skeptical had I
been told about a wooden water pipe.
Having seen and read about this mains water pipe,
I now believe.
The Courthouse also contains this old yolk…
..and many tools and gadgets
from that era as well…
..many of which were possibly thrown away
or lost and buried by father time and
have since been unearthed,
either figuratively or literally.
Steiglitz is an easy 40 kilometre drive north(ish) of Geelong.
Visitors will need to find someone with a key
to gain access to the courthouse.
Mum was probably happy to see her offspring…
…find something else to do.
It was our unexpected game drive
which gave her a break…
…and resulted in…
…these images of her…
…of six week old lion cubs.
The weather certainly has the better
of these weatherboards.
Log of wood
Water damaged log
A church or school?
Whatever it was the elements have wrecked it.
One of my favourite houses…
…looking sad just before it was razed.
Perhaps not a bona fide
Farmers Market however…
…these Arras (France) market images…
…are nearly the only market images…
Any other images…
…are of markets…
…where locals are trying…
…to capture the tourist dollar.
The Arras Market was operating…
…primarily for locals…
..to purchase the necessities of life.
My favourite images are local,
with one exception.
I just could not create this post without including
one of my lion cubs…dubbed Nosy and Rosy
Six weeks old, wild, and with mum relaxing
about 50 metres away, this image is one
of around 300 taken in the twenty minutes
we spent time with these loveable (at this age) creatures.
Geelong’s Griffin Gully Pier at sunrise.
Boat lights Geelong marina
‘Twas only dumb luck that I looked to the right
and spotted this scene.
Still at Griffin Gully Pier.
One of my all time favourite images.
A half hour drive out of Geelong
and I captured this sunset.
I like the silhouettes and the rich blue sky.
