Goulburn Court House circa 1887 by 

This Italianate style Court House takes pride of place in Goulburn, NSW, having been opened in 1887. It is still very much in use, with a maximum security gaol also in town.

As Philip J points out in the comments below, James Barnett was the architect – he also designed Sydney GPO, Lands Dept Building in Bridge St Sydney, as well as Balmain, Bathurst, Deniliquin, Newcastle, Orange, and Yass Court Houses. An impressive list of accomplishments!

Pity there weren’t a few white fluffy clouds on the day!

Taken while scouting the area for potential photo ops for a meetup next year.

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’!!!
