Mambray Creek ....




I've been away travelling in rural South Australia for the last week
These pics were taken at the lower end of the Flinders Rangers
in an area known as Mambray Creek ... the perfect picnic spot between
Adelaide and Port Augusta,
Huge freight trains travelling along this standard track are heading out to
Darwin, Whyalla or Western Australia


Time to get out ... stretch our legs
and admire the local talent
railway bridges seem to be the ideal canvas for grafitti artists

Yes that graffiti is worldwide so ugly and then only paint a few names, stupid.

I remember watching one of those long, long freight trains I think it was when at Port Augusta; near to arid botanic gardens. Nice to get outback and see other parts of the world...

Hey I've seen those trains from the same place as Carole M. The bridge looks out in the bush and so the graffiti seems unusual to be found there.

It's a long long way from Adelaide to Darwin. Some 3,000 kilometres!

Yes, railway bridges certainly attract graffitti artists - AND photographers!!!

....it's a beautiful spot to camp, too. Have spent a few freezing but fun June long weekends there.

Love the big blue gums Dianne, so this is a wee bit of 'country' graffiti oui!

It seems that graffiti artists are the same all over the world and have been for many centuries.

From what I see of the scrawl on the bridge it seems to have attracted Taggers rather than the true and creative graffiti Artists unfortunately. True graffiti art can enhance a cold stone or iron surface.

Nice shots!

Graffiti artists? No. Graffiti vandals.

It's a beautiful spot, though I always wonder how they get graffiti out onto rather precarious bridges!

Lovely shots. I think the graffiti suits the bridge.
