Miners Cottage

On our recent trip to Kalgoorlie we soaked up some history at their museums. This mining cottage definitely sparked my interest. The museum has done a great job with this exhibition.

Hope you enjoy the photos.

Change of scenery!

Fresh mornings, smell of wood fires, the crunch of gravel beneath my feet and … A super pit 😊

Boddington (2)

Hi all,

My previous post http://wp.me/pQ009-gC had a promise to be continued.

So here it is. I’ve waited because there’s a lot I could say about Boddington and mining and everything that goes with this industry.

Mostly I’d like to say that these images may be seem very sterile but its where my beloved spends half his life, where he eats his meals, washes his clothes, works and makes a fine living. I’m very proud of him, these jobs aren’t for everyone and it takes a certain kind of human to fulfill the unique challenges of a mining job.
