Such a cool subject...Your keen photographic eye, perfect choice of infrared film and the perseverance to find (sometimes just notice) all those abandoned objects and places make for a memorable collection-unforgettable forgotten...

Thanks, Helmut. What an amazing collection of impressions, not all of which are the rot on the old New Zealand farm, I'd imagine. Each tells a story, and in time one or the other may wake up to crete a yarn. Ah well, life in the good old days was no picnic. The cars are still there; the old homesteads are still there, but where are the people who left them behind?
