Remember the old red telephone box?

There are very few still standing. This one has survived in the historic village of Berrima, NSW, Australia.

A NSW Temperate Dome Roof model, dating from around the 1960s.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.
