Robe and surrounding districts, South Australia.
Joe Mortelliti‘s life long love, from when he was first given a Brownie camera as a boy, was photography. It was the focus of his work life for many years. He loved to travel with his wife Marion to as many parts of Australia as he could. He had the ability to ‘see’ the beauty of our land in such a way that he could photograph it for the delight of others. These photos are a legacy that he has left us. Used by permission and with appreciation.
It is early morning, the moon is rising and fishing boats making their way out to sea for a day’s catch.
The rustic timber, shapes, repeating patterns, and rusty metal makes this an interesting image. It is one of my wife’s favourites.
The Obelisk was built in the 1855 as a day time navigation aid.
The Obelisk shipping marker is found at Cape Dombey. It was built in 1855 and stands 12 metres high and is 30 metres above sea level. The noticeable red and white bands help guide mariners when boating.
The Bush Inn was built in 1852 and licensed to sell alcohol in 1855. This is a National Trust Certified building.
This early farm house in the Lake St Claire district is typical of many old stone dwellings throughout South Australia.

On seeing the purple expanse of colour we spent some time walking around looking how to capture it as an image, and decided to tie it in with the old stone farm house building.
