Two Tier Doors

Door

Wool would have been winched up for storage through these doors. It’s a bit difficult to see the winch since it’s not there anymore. However, there’s a socket for the winch above the top door (and where else would it have been…). The winch would have been a wooden beam with a simple pulley by the looks of other examples in the neighbourhood.

In Port Adelaide, this wool store is one of many, none of which serves its original purpose these days. As far as I could see anyway.

Expression of ‘self’

self

Remember how self expression for all of us used to be through attributes in the physical world? These days there seems to be many living in the emptiness of cyberspace where the self is reduced to a constant flow of inane and (mercifully) soon forgotten information

Statues from all continents (except antarctica)

I’ve been considering what to post this week end, but I’ve not done that much photography. That is, I did, using an analogue Olympus Mju II, but I managed to loose the damed thing. With a roll of film that I just had shot. Bother. So I decided to dig a bit in the archives for Ailsa’s travel them for this week, Statues.

I’ll do one statue per continent and for good measure throw in 2 from Australia. You guess from where they are – should not be too difficult. Two of the images are scans from analogue negatives.
