12 Collections ~ Part Eight

I’m joining Becky in her October Square Photo Challenge over at The Life of B. The rules of the challenge are simple: most photos must be square and fit the theme word Past. Look for #PastSquares. This month we’re travelling back in time in the western Queensland town of Miles and surrounds. We’ll explore the local area and join in the festivities at the Miles Back to the Bush Festival.

The self-guided Collections Tour, where local residents open their homes to share their collections, is a popular event at the festival. Some collections are huge and multi-faceted while others are small and specific. Some are vintage objects, some are a little eccentric and some are just for fun. Let’s move on to Delena and Oscar’s place.


While the display of beautiful artworks painted by Delena is inspirational, and a cacti collection in the garden is a fun addition to the tour, it’s Oscar’s orange motorbike which takes pride of place.

His 2012 Ural 750cc complete with side car certainly stands out from the other bikes in Oscar’s collection.

The next day we see the bike in action in the Festival’s Street Parade. With its vivid orange paintwork, it’s a beauty!

  1. That really is a beauty. My mother used to tell me about how as a teenager she would ride sidecar in her brother’s combination, it must have been quite exhilarating as they were very close to the road in those days (1930s)
