Did it never occur to the signwriter, why "Shielas" required a grocer's apostrophe and "Blokes" not? Toilets at the Iron Knob Motel © Rob Walls 2011

Postcards from South Australia…

Gradually making my way west across South Australia, I’m now at the tip of the Eyre Peninsula, my stepping off point to cross the Nullarbor to Western Australia. The countryside is breathtakingly beautiful, but I find I’m still most attracted to the marks we make on the landscape. When it comes to heavy industry, I’m invariably torn between the damage it does and the energy and geometric beauty of its structures.
