Back in time

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Things Made from Wood

A while ago we went to a town over the mountains, Inverell and went to the Pioneer Village. Many of the buildings have been saved and transported to the village for a living exhibition of the life and times in the 1800’s.     “The Inverell district is in a fertile agricultural region which produces a wide range of crops, including wheat, barley, oats, sorghum, wine grapes and maize. There are also some mining activities with tin, sapphires, zircons and diamonds (mainly industrial) being found.[12] Inverell is known as the ‘Sapphire City’ because of the sapphires that found throughout the local district, contributing to a major part of Australia’s sapphire production.” source Wikipedia

Here is a few of the things I found.

      1. wow – I have 17,000 photos and was feeling weighed down – maybe I should not feel that way.
        and of those – I would say about 5,000 are junkie photos and maybe another thousand are stupid things like pics of signs and screen shots.

        and with yours – well I know the quality of work you put out so I assume most of that 50,000 + are gems.
