Adelaide Road Trip, 2014
This journey was undertaken 50 years after the
first road trip to Adelaide
with Mum and Dad, back in 1964. Fortunately, Dad bought a camera the
year before, so there are some slides from that trip to compare against
the 2014 version. One of the aims of this trip was to photograph the
same places 50 years later, for comparison purpose. And it was 50 years
since the last visit, so time to see it all again.
