Winter Roadtrip - Parkes & Dubbo

Marcelo and I recently went on another road trip out west to Parkes and Dubbo. Between the townships of Eugowra and Gooloogong, we spotted a little abandoned church in a field, which I had to stop and photograph. After doing some research, I was surprised to discover that the church and school was built in 1904 and was Seventh Day Adventist, which was the religion I was raised with. Walking around and inside the church, I tried to imagine what it was like during that time and the stories of the people who attended it. In 1908, a teacher organised her students to raise money for an overseas missionary by selling pin-cushions and bonnets door to door. 
All photographs were taken July, 2014 with a Polaroid 180 camera & Polaroid Chocolate film - expired in 2009.
