If you Go Down to the Woods Today ...


My daughter Tina, Luna the Border Collie, and I took a stroll through the Chiltern State Forest



Tina with her OM-D M5-MkII - we did a little lens toing and froing, my 7mm fisheye with her 12-40mm F2.8 Pro


I got wet feet crossing the ford


Well it wasn't the Sea of Galilee ...


We abandoned the Ford when the motor blew up


Surrounded by loos, Luna was chuffed but bashful about posing for pictures


Tina's 'tank shot' with the fisheye - Luna had to be in on the act.

I could do a lot with that saw. Unlike the car it also seems part of the environment.

I see Tina got too close to the saw.
Maybe you could work a miracle on those jeans seeing as you can walk on water!
Nice fishing....

The saw was adjacent to the pine forest, it appears that that was its purpose for being there.

Yes, as has been quoted in the good book, you rip what you sew (misquoted by a Philistine scribe)

Edit: Yea my son, verily, verily I say unto you, whatsoever shalt thou sew, so shall ye rip …
Part of the historic Magenta Mine operations of 1860

Re: If you Go Down to the Woods Today ...

I'm sure you could acquire it for free were you to approach Parks & Wildlife, retrieval and cartage at your own expense of course.
The principal cost would be in the restoration as parts may be difficult to source

On the subject of signage and safety, here is an info board that you may need to sidle around to read all the text.
Hopefully you've a nice big 23" screen to view it without lateral scrolling!

Great pics Mark. That old Ford looks like a left-over from a Variety Club bash.

That may well have been the case, Larry! Tina borrows the fisheye …
