Weekly Photo Challenge: Nostalgic

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.

  1. I love the colours and the skies. And I have a nasty feeling that I remember that tin of plums from my own childhood – showing my age!


  2. Great photos! Reminds me of a place called Barkerville in Northern British Columbia, Canada. Barkerville is an old mining town that has been preserved and turned into a museum Town by the historical society. Very nostalgic indeed!


    • That would be an interesting place to see. I’m planning a trip to Canada next year, so maybe I’ll put Barkerville as a possible place to see. Thanks very much for your comment by the way. Always appreciate people leaving a message.
      Best wishes from Brisbane, Australia


    • Thank you for your comment. People like to refer to the Aussie “outback” — you could consider this town definitely out there. 🙂
