Not quite a portapotty – more a Dunny

While at Silverton near Broken Hill, NSW we came upon an artist’s studio – and he has a thing for decorating with bicycles.

I like this diorama!

Now we are back home I will tackle bricks.

    Thats a neat diorama — bicycles add too it — although I wonder what they might need to get rolling back on the road again.
    Do the feral camels range that far eastward? I did see there are camel rides at Silverton.

    The old slogan here was: Id walk a mile for a Camel – I would too, but then ride it back home 🙂

      Hi Rich. Yes, there are feral camels around Silverton – also feral donkeys. We didn’t spot any even though I was intent on seeing some. We saw plenty of Emus and Kangaroos and not a few goats. The goats though are now farmed as they thrive out there and are worth quite a bit to farmers.

      This bloke is John Dynon and he paints cartoonish pictures involving striking colour combinations influenced by living in this sunny, very dry area. They are all of a type. Well done but while the first catches your eye, the fourth and fifth have you back outside looking at what he does with old bikes.

      It looks like Talcalf’s work is different and skilfully executed.

    That’s a great work of outhouse art. Like all of the best art, it reflects reality. I know I always lean my bike up against the outhouse when I go inside. (I usually shut the door though.)

      I did find one in Victoria a couple of years ago where the door would not shut. Luckily it was a bit out of town!
