Yatina Hotel, Yatina, South Australia, Australia
When I came across this abandoned hotel, I couldn't help but feel that this old pub had been totally forgotten. Built in 1874 when the town of Yatina was established, early hopes for the new establishment were disappointed in 1877 when a promised railway extension bypassed the town. The town of Yatina never grew to any significant size and today this building remains the last clear example of what once was.
In photographing this historic building, I wanted to convey the forgotten feeling of this pub left abandoned in rural South Australia. There is a modern sealed road out the front of the building and a small hut to the left and these elements distracted from what I wanted to create in the final photo. I decided to overlay a photograph from the other side of the road. The resultant is a composite photograph, an attempt by me to leave elements out of the scene, much as a painter does, to hopefully convey the true feeling I had when I came across this forgotten pub.

Acrylic desk blocks give the photo a three dimensional look and make excellent gifts. They are perfect for desks, bookshelves, and mantelpieces.
Each 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 a final hand polish.
