|The Darling River near the Mitchell Highway bridge at North Bourke in 1993.|
Just behind me, there is a new road bridge, that wasn't there when this photograph was made. The river looked in reasonable nick back then; I gather it's a lot different now. The wind pump is long gone as well. But this image reminds me of a long outback trip we make in a borrowed Holden Jackaroo 4WD. Fun times.

Hi Will,a nice memory from your archive and when you were young,some things are disappear and now there is a new bridge,but it's nice to see a memory of the past made in this excellent quality,it seems a pic made today,i like it! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano
A torn down wind pump may not be quite like a destroyed Greek temple, but it's a sign of changing times that may make some people nostalgic and melancholic. It is a special feeling to watch something that no longer exists. The blades of the pump look quite decorative against the fluffy light clouds. The slide, or possibly a negative, has kept well for 24 years and you have scanned it to look pretty much like a brand new digital photo.
Thanks for your kind words about my Baku Ballet. I am quite sure that H C-B would have appreciated a number of your conversations and other street photos.

Hello Will, A nostalgic picture when we realize that such a bucolic view doesn't exist any more. Lovely small river and attractive the wind pump. Excellent quality of this 24 years old picture. It must have been fun trip outback that time.
Kind regrad s Malgo
Hi dear Will
So stylish landscape image from you. A Wind wheal is the best landmark in this perfectly considered framework. Tasty color touch adds fantatstic mood too.
All the best and have a good day! Takero
A memory. How things change. Especially with this conservative government intent on turning this country into one big hot coal pit. An idyllic scene, with beautiful warm light and reflections on the water.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely day
Nice to see you are active again and though its a simple composition it works very well, mainly because the beautiful lights!
