Today’s Photo

Taken at Central Stories here in Alexandra. I think that this is equipment associated with gold mining.

Robot Room

Today, at Central Stories, a museum here in Alexandra, Central Otago, Jamie kindly showed me a room that I had never been in before. In fact, I didn’t know it existed! It is used for storage of parts of gold mining equipment. This town was built on gold.

When I saw this room I thought that it could be an exhibition just as it was. There was something about it that was perfect. It could almost be in a Biennale, although transportation of it could be a problem. 

Lighting was dim and I didn’t have a tripod so this photo is a little soft. I’m not even sure that photography is a suitable medium for conveying the power of this chamber.
