Spring Outings – Bruno’s Sculpture Gardens

I have been to Bruno’s in Marysville a few times, this is a remarkable attraction to visit. Almost completely devasted in the 2009 bushfires, Bruno has been slowly but surely putting things back how they were. So it was wonderful when we visited here recently with a photography friend to see so many new pieces.…

Wimmera-Mallee Silo Art – Nullawil

I believe I have saved my favourite for last. Completed in 2018 by artist Smug (from Scotland). Depicting the Aussie kelpie, a farmer’s best friend. The farmer is only partially represented in the image, with the attention placed solely on the dog, named Jimmy. The detail in the fur and Jimmy’s eyes are simply wonderful.…

Sea Lake is the newest of the Wimmera-Mallee (Victorian) Silo Art trail, which forms part of the Australian Silo Art Trail.

Wimmera-Mallee Silo Art – Rochester

I reckon these silos have to be among the cutest, featuring a squirrel glider and an azure kingfisher, both local and native to the region. Painted by (Jimmy)Dvate. The town of Rochester is super proud of these silos, and why wouldn’t they be. If you would like to read more about Dvate or the cute…

Mondays Musings…

The year is rapidly drawing to a close (I keep saying that!), but it’s been crazy busy. Shoots that have been booked literally for months happened this weekend, one was cancelled, but we were on location anyway, so made the best of being out in nature. I had a photographer friend spend the weekend, down…

NE Silo Art Trail – St James

St James has a population of fewer than 100 residents and is small even by Australian small-town standards. The Artwork here depicts a mural of Sir George Coles, the founder of Coles supermarkets (Now one of the largest in Australia) who was a local to the St James township. The silo bunkers at St James were built in…
