Shot this last summer, just before the demolition men moved in. Not there now.

A stoned guard and a stoned machine operator! Whats not to like?! Only in Oz. To be fair, they were stripping the roof off the mill for salvage. Only the newish bits were being flattened.Whilst the stoners giggled away. Lucky find. I had a quiet day and just headed for a nearby town to see what was there. You win some...

I think I have s shot from the roof, looking toward another mill. And I think that said 'Vine' on it, but I'm not sure as I have cunningly left my back up hard drive at work and my photos are on there. This place had an extension on the front of it made of steel and tin, when you went inside that, the original front doors were inside that structure, if that helps. I went right up to the roof and took pictures in the cab where the lift gear was. I'll post more when I get a mo.
