This week’s WordPress photo challenge asks that we show what nostalgia means to us.
My photos were taken on a trip to the Burdekin area of North Queensland (Australia). The area was opened up by the discovery of gold in the mid 1800’s. The town of Ravenswood was once a thriving mining town with a population of 5000 at the height of its operations. Today with just one small mine operating, the town’s population has shrunk to just 500.
