Country Roads

The word prompt from Bren: Photo for the Week – 6 – Country Roads

As I live in the country, I often travel country roads. Here’s a selection of roads near my place that always go to somewhere.

Along the roads near my place, sometimes there aren’t any fences so signs are helpful.

Up the road a way, at times the valley is lush and the road just winds along through the countryside

Some long roads that are dead ends, the postie prefers all the mail boxes in one place.

The road just seems to go on forever

And sometimes the road can end abruptly when there’s a flood

It’s not only vehicles that use the road. I disturbed a Wedge-tailed Eagle having a snack on the side of the road.

But best of all, the road that leads to home

Black and White Sunday – Traces of the Past

Traces of the past made me delve into the past finding some photos of stuff I have found lately that have come from the past.

One visit to Sydney I came across an old letter box or post box. I love the ornate top and the cast iron construction. They used to be everywhere in Sydney. I wonder if this is the last one that is still in use?

I love this old farm house from the early part of last century.
