I live at Riddells Creek in the Macedon Ranges of Victoria, and have been involved in Horticulture all my life.
I play Blues Harmonica and Bodhran’ in my spare time, as well as getting involved with Genealogy and Medieval History,
I have also been acting for 40 years and was lucky to be cast as a judge in the movie “Stricly Ballroon”…
But my camera is my passion.

    Stunning building and beautifully captured, Larry!

  • And it was all smelling musty and damp inside…. Typically hundreds of years old, but still in use…

    I think that your forte is architectural photography, Larry! This is marvellous.

  • Thanks so much Bette.
    I do love architecture, but I love Historical Architecture more than the Modern..
    I also like looking at all the angles and shapes within architecture as well.
    It must have come from being involved with having a passion for Medieval History
    and making Chainmail Armour..? ( I have lots of hobbies )

    Good capture from Distance, Larry. The Vertical lines are Vertical. Thanks for the info too.

  • I must agree with you about the vertical lines…
    So many buildings in the UK have the lines crooked… But then age does that to us all.. hehe.

    wow, beautiful! I really like this.

  • It certainly was an old relic from the past.
    And it was also well looked after… I think it needed to be promoted more, so more people new about it..!
