Photographer's Note

230 Scenic Drive, Merewether Heights, Newcastle, NSW. Scenic Drive is the road linking Merewether Heights to the ocean front at Merewether itself, where we used to live. It is actually quite scenic, despite my evidence to the contrary. This was taken while we were living in Newcastle, and travelling this road quite regularly; when we returned 10 years later in 2003, they were still there, though the corrugated iron and clapboard shack they were attached to had fallen even further into ruin. The jacaranda tree was still there too. I may show it later. I think the cars are French; no doubt Tyro will tell me. And perhaps someone can tell me why so many of us are drawn to images of decay and ruin: on the opposite side of the road are smart new houses...
