    Hart's Mill Port Adelaide

    by Plays with Light » Tue Sep 08, 2015 10:21 pm

    A flying visit to the Port of Adelaide today for me, with this building being my main target whilst there. The pano. was assembled in Lightroom's Pano. module, from five handheld portrait oriented images, click through to see it larger if you'd like to. It was good to see the old girl finally getting a wig! :wink:

    It's good how that area out front in the first picture has remained open, there is a nice sense of history to the picture.

    I'm glad I got this one of the Islington railway workshops, because when I went past a month ago there is a white box shape building now on the left side that spoils the whole aesthetic.

    Are they making the roof of the mill weather tight do you think.
    It looks from all the scaffold that they are not game to access the roof from inside.

    I don't mind what they have done with the play ground side either, there remains an industrial feel to it.

    I enjoyed the breathing room to her, it allows all manner of events to be held there, and leaving the ramps from the old "Troubridge" ferry service to Kangaroo Island is a nice touch too, adding to the history there.

    She's definitely getting weather proofed from the top, next they will have to fix the windows.

    The playground is a great one, keeping in theme as it does so well. I was tempted to go on the slippery-dip and the hamster wheel, but thought the better of it, when a gaggle of ladies walked past after exiting the café next to it.

    I just hate how they put a playground next to anything worth getting a camera out.


    some of the looks I get :)


    must need a haircut :)
    I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all the kinds of things you can't see from the center.

    I don't mind the playground here, it's in keeping with the industry of the area, well, the industry that was and is no longer... :roll:

    Could be the mo! Either that or you've been introducing yourself as your flickr handle again! :wink:

    I'd rather the Samyang 14mm for a touch over that. :)

    Yeah it must be the overgrown mo. it can't be the flickr handle as it changed itself to my name and not the old MrStinkybait.

    I did not realise the 17mm tilt shift samyang was that cheap now.

    I preferred Mr Stinkybait! Very unique.

    I mean the 14mm Samyang (non-T/S) ultra wide angle, it's a beast of a thing for a quarter of the price of the Canon and better imagery to boot!

    The 24mm Samyang T/S can be had for just under (US) $700 at the moment. I'd love the Canon 17mm T/S lens, but beggars can't be choosers in my case. Maybe one day. :doubt:
