Yesterday I backtracked half of the route I took last weekend when this happened to take some photos. With me was my excited little sister. She sat in the passenger seat with her little head flipping around to look at all the views the Maleny, Montville and Mapleton had to offer.
We picked up my new camera first from a lovely man. I spoke with him for about half an hour about this new camera that I hadn’t yet known how to fully operate. N played with their dog, Sash. After we left his and his wife’s place we drove to Mapleton first to have lunch. N had a meat pie, because she doesn’t follow my lifestyle, and I nibbled on some roasted roots and lentils in turmeric and sesame seed oil (check out this post from Elenore). From there we headed back home, stopping at different places along the road to take photos. N had a turn at my new camera and my old film camera.
I am sort of speechless of how beautiful our trip was. I shouldn’t still be surprised that Mother Earth can stand up above everything and continue to be so stunning. Though I hope I continue to be in awe.
Here are some of my snaps from yesterday.
Cool mountain air and lush green views from Maleny lookout.
My little sister and I came across these cows. They all looked so healthy and just happy to be grazing and playing with each other. Three of them were pregnant, my sister pointed out to me. They seemed content on going about their grazing while I took many photos, two of them even posed for the camera.
Art work skies.
This was the view out the back of this really old house. I think they are macadamia trees but I couldn’t get over the vine covered fence to find out for sure.
This is the old house. It looked completely gutted and a few of the windows were broken. I look back at the photos I took of it and dream about what I could to to this structure to make it more functional. It’s abandoned charm was undeniable though.
All the fences were old and most of the wood had this green growth attached.
Have a great week ahead, beauties.
