I spent a day at Tailem Bend in South Australia recently and I have to say it is a photographers paradise. Here in this image is the original church that our pioneers used in the Tailem Bend Village in the 1800’s. Life was hard back then and I will bring you a glimpse into the lives that once belonged here. There are 110 homes and buildings to wander into and 13 streets. The village was torn down from its original area and rebuilt again in a more accessable place for tourists to access. It took years to rebuild in its original condition.
I hope you enjoy this series as much as I enjoyed photographing it. It is an amazing place! I have not photoshoped these Pioneer images I have taken each photo as I saw it on the day! Shadows and all !

Love My Nikon Camera. Have only been doing photography for about 2 years now and am totally addicted!
