Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

My old favourite Hotel Orlan .. complete with chicken!!

This hotel is in the tiny one Post Office town of Yatina on the way to the Flinders Ranges.

I’m a wife.
A mother.
I work.
I blog.
I photograph.
I design tees.
I’m tired.

Hi, my name’s Cathie – although I am mostly animated and a bit of a character – I am a real person and like to think of myself as a digital artist. I occasionally revert to my original persona – taking “straight” photos!

    I love deserted looking places like this… and yes, the chicken (and the clouds) somehow makes the photo special. I like the off-center composition. ;)

    Thanks Tim. I’m quite taken with the big nothingness in the middle!! :) – but somehow it sits just right!!

    Ah, so it was you up in this neck of the woods the other day photographing the Burra Ruin. I knew I should’ve got hubby to stop.

    Excellent capture Cathie especially when the sun always seems to be in an awkward position on this old hotel. Hotel Orlando has been for sale for quite a long time, but unless there’s a gold rush in the area I think it’ll stay for sale.
