The Regional Museum in Temora, in the Riverina region of NSW, is a real treasure trove of Australian history. The cottage where legendary Australian cricket captain, Donald Bradman (Later Sir, batting average: 99.94) was born and raised in Cootamundra, has been transported to this museum. This is the living room of the house, taken through glass.
Later, “The Don” lived and played in Bowral, in the Southern Highlands, where there is now a new museum dedicated to him, and the cricket oval as well.

Nikon D80, Sigma 17-70mm lens @ 17mm, hand held, 1/5 sec @ f 2.8, Program setting, ISO 400, Pattern metering, Auto Exp & WB. Then, as is my wont, I mucked around with it in PS Elements 3, converting to Sepia then doing a part colourisation to try and achieve a vintage effect.

An old photographer and his dog trying to find what turns a photograph into a worthwhile picture. Perhaps try to take a worthwhile photograph in the first place? The digital darkroom is a creative, fascinating place. If only I could learn to use it and the cameras I have to best effect… I love “mucking around”, as you can see!

Now, you know all my stuff is Copyright If you try and pinch any of it, I’ll jump through your screen and rip your bloody arms off!

    How interesting these musea are.They preserve a slice of live of our ancestors

  • Bonjour, Gilberte! This museum is especially interesting, because it has collected memorabilia from an agricultural region. This slab timber cottage was transported to the site and set up to show what life was like in the early 1900s. :)george

    Nice indoor shot, George.
    Bet there is more to explore, right ?

  • Thanks very much for your visit and comments, Jan. There is a great deal to be explored here, as it is impossible to see everything in on brief visit. I’ll see what I can do…. :)george

    Got to love tongue & groove ceilings, great scene, nicely done

  • G’day Michael – glad you like this homely scene. The whole cottage was transported from Cootamundra and is all in surprisingly good condition. In what is a part colourisation, I tried to retain the warmth and cosyness of the room. :)george
