gutted…

Occasionally random events offer a representation of life events sent to test us. A Sunday morning recently I woke at 5.15am to hear a neighbour say “It’s on fire!”. We marvelled in our nightclothes out in the cold as an abandoned van was engulfed outside our building. The next morning taking these photos I was struck by how a fire so quickly put out could thoroughly vaporize most of the interior. Somewhere, however, someone will make the most of the remaining metal husk and turn it into something useful again. And that’s the take home message of today’s post. Despite how blasted out and pulled to shreds we can feel by traumatic events there is a way forward, we can be renewed, and, although initially seemingly impossible, the silver linings and priceless gifts are revealed in time.

where cars go to die…

What is it about the country and everyone needing to collect dead cars? :-/

need more than one colour of course New Age

Where: Birchip, and many other country towns around the world!

petrol combustion…

Petrolhead nirvana: hardcore custom petrol go carts, vintage cars, fast custom street cars. Or, more correctly, glorious shiny things.

Many thanks to C, K, E, B and especially R for their hospitality at B&M Refinishers, home of the world’s most powerful street car, Craig Munro’s Tryhrd (as in you’ll have to try damn hard to beat it!).

surveillance…

The wonderfully derelict wall of windows at Amcor Paper Mills taunted us. I’d love to have the chance to photograph inside before it’s another casualty of the apartment boom – I wonder who to write to…?

 

The real Mereenie Loop Road…

When I was planning my Central Australia trip it was difficult to find useful information about the state of the Mereenie Loop Road. Videos I found made it out to be a difficult, dangerous and sometimes very wet adventure. In contrast, I found it to be more like a well made, unpaved highway. Perhaps I got lucky 🙂

For sure, though, you’ll ruin the shockers of a street car – 4WD definitely recommended!

Well worth it for the fantastic scenery, the emptiness and for avoiding most of a day’s drive back to Alice Springs from King’s Canyon.

petrol patina…

Last time I reported on the petrol station in Chelsea/Edithvale I said it was looking sad and non-photo worthy. Well it’s sadder than ever but I was wrong about its photogenic qualities. Cars may no longer park there, mustn’t be covered by the insurance. It’s been getting on to three years since I first posted on this place. I wonder what they’re waiting for…
