Sunday Stills – Window
This week the prompt for Terri’s Sunday Stills Photo Challenge, is Window.
One of my fave bloggers Hugh, from Hugh’s Views and News, is hosting this week as Terri is off on an adventure.
And I’m a bit late to the party! Oops!
It’s another HOT day here in Tumbarumba, so the Mathematician and I decided on an early morning bike ride, like well before 7.30am! We rode about 20km all up and enjoyed the cooler morning temperatures – the forecast was for another day well over 30 degrees C.
We’ve been involved in the formation and construction of the Tumbarumba to Rosewood Rail Trail project for years and I’m happy to say it’s starting to happen – albeit very slowly!

Today on our ride around town, we checked out the progress on the old Crew Barracks which had been donated to the Historical Society and placed near where the rail trail will go. The building dates back to about the 1920s and was originally painted this colour. Many working bees have been held lately with both the inside and outside getting a coat of paint, as well as fixing up the roof and redoing the windows. After it has been cleaned up and repainted it will house a collection of photos and stories relating to the Tumbarumba Railway – keeping the history alive!
The old Tumbarumba Station Crew Barracks was moved back to near the rail corridor after doing service as a farm shed for many years. I love that the horse had to wander through to have a look around too.
It was these windows that caught my attention – or maybe it was the view through the windows. The quintessential Australian blue sky with gum trees and dry grassy paddocks on a hot summer’s day spoke to me, so I decided to use these windows for the weekly Sunday Stills challenge. (I also love the word quintessential!)
I like to think that the view probably hasn’t changed much at all in the passing years 🙂
This is the other shot I wanted to share with you – it’s more a window showing you a part of our beautiful little town on a glorious summer morning.
Enjoy your week and stay cool, or warm, depending on your hemisphere!
