Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: 1990s Seascapes

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Landscapes or Seascapes

For this Fun Foto challenge, I’ve decided to share some old photographs taken in the 1990s with my horrible olden-days camera. This first one is at a beach near Adelaide, South Australia.

This second one is what is left of the Twelve Apostles, along The Great Ocean Road, near Port Campbell, Victoria. We called in, on the way home from the Port Fairy Folk Festival, and joined scores of tourists on the viewing platforms. In 2005, eight years after this photo, the apostle in the foreground collapsed.

Wikipedia says:

The Twelve Apostles is a collection of limestone stacks off the shore of the Port Campbell National Park, by the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. Their proximity to one another has made the site a popular tourist attraction. Currently there are 8 apostles left but the name remains significant and spectacular especially in the Australian tourism industry.

These old photos have a certain nostalgic charm and are just as they scanned, without enhancement.

    Oh dear, what a shame. I remember when little we would go and see them, absolutely spectacular, albiet very windy. At one stage people were clambering over them, and unintentionally causing terrible damage, so they banned access to them.

    As they should be, imho. Because otherwise they would look like anything shot today – which would make their subject matter quite wrong ! 😀
