DAYS GONE BY - Acrylic Desk Block

Burra, South Australia, Australia

Country South Australia is littered with abandoned old farmhouses such as this. They provide a strong reminder of pioneering days gone by. This derelict farm cottage near the town of Burra, in South Australia, was made famous after a photograph of it was used as the cover for the Australian rock band Midnight Oil's album ‘Diesel and Dust’ in the 1980s. Like many other ruins in the area, I'm sure this old farmhouse has its own special story to tell about its past. With no markings as to its history, I stood there imagining the original inhabitants looking out on the land before them from the front door and really wanted to capture this connection to the past. As the sun went down the area was lit up by beautiful golden light, truly conveying a classic rural scene that for me represents much about the whole region and its history.

ACRYLIC DESK BLOCKS.

Our acrylic desk blocks give the photo a three dimensional look. They are perfect for desks, bookshelves, mantlepieces, bed side tables - any horizontal surface.

The photo is printed on professional grade metallic photographic paper, using archival inks. It is then mounted on the back of an acrylic (plexiglass) block. It is finished with diamond polishing, buffing and final hand polish.

They are free standing, so no hanging system is required. These are a very popular option for gifts, farewell presents or if you need a small lightweight option to travel with. Acrylic desk blocks come in a box ready to gift.
