Street scene in the town of Portland NSW just west of Lithgow. The town was built around the cement works which operated from 1902 until 1991. There are some interesting old buildings around the town.

Having visited many overseas countries and travelled extensively all over Australia since my early teens you can see by my portfolio that the Australian landscape is my favourite subject. I used to take slides because I liked the big picture but having been converted to digital I now shoot with a Nikon D5200, A Panasonic Lumix FZ18 (love that 500mm zoom) and a Samsung compact.

    I love small towns and their quaint buildings. But there’s one thing that puzzles me, Terry. How come those walk signs don’t show hairy legs and thongs?

  • You got me Gary , it would be more Aussie.

    Beautiful image Terry. My Dad was born in Portland. His Dad (my grandfather) worked at the cement works as a powder monkey. Its a beautiful old town – I hope you took a photo of the lake that has collected in the old quarry there as the water colour is magnificent … thanks for the memories♥

  • Thanks Bev glad it bought back memories for you. No I missed the Lake. Will have to checkl it out next time.

    Portland is certainly well worth a look. This brings back some memories. I don’t recall seeing the Shell signage on the garage but I did spot some others around the town. I also got a couple of shots of the deserted cement works from the fence. It would be good to wander through there.

  • Thanks Dash, it is an interesting old town. Wouldn`t mind looking around the old works too.
