Some old Architecture from an Australian Perspective

On trips to Egypt and South America I visited and photographed temples and tombs  that were more than 5000 years old. In Kakadu I have photographed aboriginal art work probably older than that. In recent Australian history anything older than 100 is old and Mudgee is one of the oldest towns in country NSW

On Sunday morning we took ourselves to St Paul’s Presbyterian church in Mudgee for morning worship. The very young minister, Simon Chen, was just called this year from Malaysia. A simple,clear evangelical message. A very beautiful buliding that I photographed on Monday morning, soon after dawn. I have been experimenting with HDR techniques, using three exposures to extend the dynamic range of images taken in contrasting light conditions

The other three National Trust listed churches in Mudgee are equally beatiful buildings – all are built in the late 1800’s. The Uniting Church was originally Methodist but the Anglican and  Catholic Churches have been in continuous use for more than 100 years – a very large part of recent Australian history

  1. Hi Dad,

    We have been patiently waiting for the first update and now glad to see them starting to come through.

    Is mum going to write anything?

    I’ll send you an email with an update on how my bike trip went.

    Talk soon,

    Simmo

    • Just read your trip report Simo – you beat me to the punch – I =have been offline (dead spot in Telstra network at Tullamore) but intended to email you asking for a report on your trip. It was disappointing to not complete the ride on your bike but two interesting rides in lieu. Are your writing a report for your mate to publish? Mum wrote the entry on the ten dollar town without photograph. So far I have written the others.
