I have changed the name of this photo due to a wonderful email that I received from a fellow Redbubbler Julie Whittle.

Julie wrote that she sees this lady on an almost daily basis. This lady lives in a now heritage protected house in Morphett Street in the city, a house that her family have owned and lived in since 1913……… 98 years!!

Julie also very kindly supplied a link to an ABC story that George Negus did on Pauline (Mrs Stay-Put) in 2003.

I cant thank you enough for contacting me regarding this fascinating lady Julie! :)

This photo came 2nd in the 2010 Photo of the Year awards at the Port Adelaide Camera Club

Featured in Life in the City, Suburbs, or Bush. December 2011

I love being a tourist in my own country; the unique flora and fauna, the wonderful people, the striking vivid colours. Photography has opened up my country to me. I try to get out into it & photograph it as often as I can. Access to the great Australian outback is within easy reach of everyone! I hope you take the time to view some of my photos & I hope that they inspire you to go for a drive on the weekend and see what you can see.
