Photographer's Note

Please open in a new tab.
I'm back from a week happily free of wifi in the New South Wales high country (The Snowy Mountains) - photos from there in a few days.
Now a second photo showing the old capital of Fiji in 1875 and 1997.
The bottom photo, taken by my great grand father in about 1875, shows the family photographic studio with my great, great grandfather's name on the front.
The top photo was taken by me in 1997 and shows where the shop had been. The building on the right is the building on the right of the bottom photo but a bit "modernised".
You'll notice the shadowy figure of a Fijian in the old photo - that is because the glass plates of that time required long exposures.
