The Convent, Daylesford, Melbourne, Australia.
Nikon D90, 18-105mm kit lens.

This 19th Century Victorian mansion was built in the 1860’s as the private residence for the Gold Commissioner, the building was purchased by the Catholic Church in the 1880’s and was a convent and boarding school for nearly 100 years. Left in disrepair, the site was purchased by artist Tina Banitska in 1989. Over the past 15 years she has tirelessly and meticulously restored the building and grounds, highlighting its original splendour and combining aspects of contemporary architecture and art into the fabric of the building.

Featured in Christian Churches group July 2010.
Finalist in Arches challenge.
