Re: I missed one from the series

Nice series to illustrate a fun, funky little spot that seems right out of Aussie Central Casting, a mix of Queen Victoria herself and Crocodile Dundee. Good call to keep the lighting darkened and natural, flash would have ruined these images. As they are, there's a richness of color and tone in the shadows that makes us feel like we're there - warm, friendly, casual, eclectic.

Love the sleepy little barefoot fellow in the pj's.

When I looked at this week's posts, so far, I saw that Kumsal was taking us to Tasmania. I changed my mind about this weeks post, I've been giving Tassie a working over of late.

Dimboola. A little town in the Wimmera area of Victoria. Some years ago it was bypassed by the main highway and now it is fading away. We needed a place to stay a couple of months ago, got off the main highway and discovered Dimboola. These shots are of the hotel where we had an excellent meal, enjoyed time with the locals and found some very surprising rooms inside. You will be seeing more of Dimboola.

Dimboola is also the name of a famous Australian play and film. It tells the tale of a wedding. When staged, the play usually takes the form of a wedding reception and meal and the audience have a meal while the play goes on around them. This is the reference in photo 1.

PS. Light levels were very low inside and I decided to keep the feeling.

On the wall in the pub.

This should have been number four.
