The word prompt from Nancy Merrill: Tilted
“Have you ever tilted your camera on accident and then thought “Wow, that works!” If you have some time to work with your subject (or subjects), try some shots with your camera tiled from slightly to wildly and see what happens. It can add a unique twist to a commonplace image.” – Nancy
Well, I didn’t know which way to tilt trying to get this photo of a building in Seoul

This time for Traces of the Past, I thought I would take you to my home town of Grafton. A relatively new place, Grafton was first settled by Europeans in 1849 and the City was established. There are still some buildings that have survived from the later part of the 19th Century. The CBC Bank is one that still stands. Built in 1877 from stone and has lace iron work. A very impressive building for its day. One of my favourite buildings.
A bit of the entrance with the carving in the stone and the iron gates
The circular carving in detail
There are also some rectangular carvings as well
The stone balustrades are starting to show their age
Beautiful isn’t it? For more wonderful photos in Traces of the Past have a look at Lost in Translation
Australia isn’t an old country. Settled in 1788, many of the buildings have gone and there is still some Traces of the Past.
I have, as in my last blog, gone back thousands of years. This time I have a bit of the architecture from the not too distant past.
Many of the buildings in Sydney and the surrounding settlements were made of sandstone. Sydney sandstone is a valuable building material now-a-days. This church is in Springwood in the the Blue Mountains which surround Sydney to the west.
Another sandstone structure. A spire on a building in Newtown, Sydney
A mix of building materials. Sandstone, brick and copper on the Trades Hall Center in the City.

CONFINED – The Quoll or Australian Native Cat had been killing my chooks so I set a trap to catch it. I released the Quoll in the National Park near my place.
