A hand-operated mincer found in the old dairy building at Monte Cristo … a beautifully restored historic home at Junee (NSW, Australia). Junee also boasts an amazing licorice and chocolate factory … !

This was a walk down memory lane as, 35 years ago, we visited often when this was a haunted (still is apparently!) old home sitting in a paddock on the edge of town. The original owners still live here, continuing to indulge their love of restoration and history, along with nine ghosts, and new homes climbing the hill in stark contrast to the stately old homestead and outbuildings.

I suffer from viewfinder vision (find myself visualising a frame around everything I see) so my genre is “anything that moves and most things that don’t”!!

I don’t so much wish to document places and things, as to evoke feeling and emotion.

This leads to a diverse portfolio and constantly overloaded external hard drives…not to mention some burning of the midnight oil as I keep looking for that elusive perfect process for yet another ‘masterpiece’!!!

    Beautiful capture Rosalie, love the lighting, spider webs and all, makes it more authentic looking

  • I thought I shouldn’t bat the cobweb away Josie – it may be part of the ‘scene’ for the ghosts!
