Braidwood vintage lamps - part 3

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 29 August 2012 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Here you see a portrait of Robert Aernout, owner of The Original Lamp Shop in Braidwood. This week I post a short series I shot last weekend in his shop. I thank Robert for the opportunity.

Braidwood is unique - the whole town is Heritage Listed. One of my favourite buildings in town gave me one of my first images on Am3 - as you can see here.

Last weekend, I also visited the Braidwood Museum. In a future post I will show you a restored Gold Escort Coach from the Museum. Horse drawn vehicles featured in
my series on Dransfield's Mill - located in the Braidwood area. As you can tell - a fine region for a photo shoot!
