Fun Foto Old and New, #loveballarat, #ballaratgoldmuseum Ballarat, Australia Travel Series #1
My friends in Australia, The Eternal Traveller, aka Mrs. ET and her husband’s family, escorted me to the Gold Museum in Ballarat. Not to pick up so loose gold, unfortunately, but to learn the history of the Australian Gold Rush.
Aside: We did some panning at Old Sovereign Hill, where I became enormously rich thanks to their generosity.
A famous artist at the time, Eugene von Guerard, sketched many pictures of the evolving mine fields in Ballarat. The museum displayed one of them looking in the exact direction at the distant mountain as the window. So I shot a picture of them both at the same time, the old and the new.
