Hello Gert,

From both angles, this building is awful, from its dilapidated condition to its boarded up windows. (Though I am sure Craig would enthuse about it!) It is surprising that something in such a state of decay is central to an attractive area. I know, sometimes, you leave something because you are not sure what to do with it and, after a while, you cease to notice it. But councils have a greater responsibilities than individuals at home!

On the plus side, your photograph is a fine example of good composition:a strongly placed focal figure and a curving, guide line that is irresistible.
The textures are undeniably sharp.
There is just a hint of humour. I couldn't help thinking that the road sign, which is out of view of the lady, is intimating that she should be going the opposite way, away from the ghastly building!

Have a good w/e,
Bev :-)

Default To macjake: Kangaroo Island

Hi Craig
Yes there are beaches for people to lie on but they are on the northern side of the island where there a a few "resorts". The southern beaches and rocky coastline are more for the sea lions and seals.
There is a permanent population - about 5,000 with plenty of agriculture (sheep, grains, vineyards, honey) and unfortunately the extensive national park and other forests suffered badly in the recent fires with huge numbers of koala deaths. The only up market resort (in a wilderness area) also got burnt out.
If you ever make it out her and to Kangaroo Island you won't regret it - there is plenty of interest for kids too.
