Weekly photo challenge: One shot, two ways

We went to Gundaroo today, a short drive from Canberra out into the country, where we walked past a little library that always amuses me.  It is typical of pioneer architecture in Australian country towns established a hundred or more years ago.  Today the sky was a perfect winter blue, a great day to be out in the street photographing in portrait and landscape.

The photo challenge is to take a photo of the same subject vertically and horizontally.  I took 99 photos today, less than half of them vertical, more than half … well, horizontal.  Here are two.

    • Gundaroo is based on the Aboriginal word for the nearby river, now called the Yass River. And the building was donated to the village by a man who established a Mutual Improvement Society and wanted a library for it. These things make us chuckle now.

    • What’s funny in Gundaroo is that the ‘library’ has no books but the cafés and shops sell large numbers of books, new and used. Thanks for looking at my photos and preferring one.

    • I agree. We have quite a number of these 19th-century buildings around the country – since we’re not very old we tend to heritage-list anything that’s still upright if it was built in the 1800s.
