Gorgeous greys in Goondiwindi

Barry and I made another road trip to Goondiwindi on Sunday-Monday to collect some art from a show. The Aspect Art Show is  a great show and it's wonderful to see such talent, such gorgeous art  and such enthusiasm.

The show is held in a corrugated iron building at the Showground in Goondiwindi and when we were there yesterday I just fell in love with the greys...








Sometimes you don't need many words.

  4. Great to see corrugated structures still standing near you as well!! I adore these buildings. Nothing better than driving down a lane a finding it leads to a tin tabernacle.

    1. I love them too Annie and you can see some of the history in places in some of the shots. Australia has a lot of them; must have been cheap, and even so, our newish house (6 years old) is built using it as well!

  5. I love the alliteration of the Goondiwindi greys. They are such soft hued greys, nothing hard about them, and that photo of the corrugated sheet looks like tiny open mouths to me....

    1. There's an Australian back story to the Goondiwindi greys as well Lesley - a famous horse from there was a grey. But aren't they soft and worn and gentle and just gorgeous? Maybe the wall was talking? Go well.

    1. Thanks Amanda - I do love the worn beauty of these as well, was so good to be reminded to see the beauty in them.

  7. I always think grey is a really generous colour, and your photos prove that. Old buildings look great garbed in grey as it softens and enhances. I particularly like the corrugated iron with the little smiles. Lovely, Fiona.

  8. Grey is so warm and gentle isn't it Carol? I truly love it, and find it very nurturing and peaceful. And old grey sheds and buildings have so many tales to tell.
