Great shot Lawrie. Your 1933 Ford Sedan sure earns its keep. Thanks for sharing.

Painted Silos at Yelarbon, Queensland, but no 1933 Ford to make them look better.

Thanks for taking the time to share with us the scenery in your part of the world..it appears to me that the exterior siding has been removed on the front, or maybe never installed.

We have a huge silo in Fort Dodge, Iowa. It was painted a couple years ago by an Australian artist named Guido van Helten. I wonder if he is the artist who painted the silos Lawrie photographed.

Nice pictures, lot of talent. Thanks. I have a question, is the cabin/home raised up for water or critters?

Pretty cool beats all that "rap gangster" crap that, local municiples try to pass off as art to brighten up the place (and the illegal stuff).
