Camped in Ruins

We camped at Farina Ruins a town in the far north of South Australia, a bush camp on the edge of the desert.  It was settled in 1878 by farmers. The town is no longer inhabited, with the closest residents now living at Farina station, west of the town. The post office closed in the 1960s. In its heyday, the town had two hotels and a bakery. Today their is nothing but stone ruins.

Wow, how incredible those photos are. I love the decay and texture you captured, and I love that your children are getting to see such a diversity of life and learn so much about history and culture. I got your email. I knew you would be out and about, probably unable to get reception, no worries. I really can't imagine doing what you do...I admire what you're accomplishing. Take care!
