Part of a series of ‘my first camera’ (Kodak era) shots taken in my youth.

The last gasp of the steam era as it meets the latest ‘shiny new’ technology, head on.

Digitalised and post-processed from a Kodachrome slide image taken in the Sixties at South Brisbane Railway Station, Queensland, Australia.

Simply respecting and celebrating life … in all its magnificent diversity … is nowadays the truly radical act of any artist.

It is no accident that one of the most significant ways of revitalizing the spirit and reconnecting with our deeper senses & more worthy selves is found in communion with nature and life itself … and in our power to imagine.

There is much that is wondrous to behold, value, defend and gain strength from.

    Hmm I know that station, not in the 60’s but I know that station. The little slilver carriage behind the steamer they were still in service in the 80’s, I remember riding one to school. Thank you this is a nice shot.

  • Thanks for commenting. They were called rail motors and I travelled on them on school trips in North Queensland as well. But in Brisbane it was always the trams, also now disappeared.

    That’s right Rail Motors, yes..They would run between Yerongpilly and Tennyson. to transfer between the Beenleigh and the Ipswich lines. That’s funny. Thank you

    Nostalgia!!

  • Ohhh, I was hoping you would call it art Karl! Just kidding …
    Certainly has some schoolboy memories attached to it, like ignoring the "No trespassing’ signs to take the shot!
