a different time...real explorers

Herbert Basedow — anthropologist, geologist, scientist, explorer and medical practitioner — was a remarkable Australian. He was renowned for the breadth of his work across central and northern Australia in the early decades of the twentieth century. His extensive knowledge of the country and his opinions were highly valued by scientists, politicians and businessmen of his era.
Part of his great legacy is the National Museum of Australia's collection of more than 2200 negatives created during his many expeditions in remote Australia. His photographs reveal his diverse interests and provide poignant reflections of expeditionary and frontier life — a window into a different time. Come with me to this amazing collection of one of the most famous explorers in Australia....the best thing... Basedow, hundred years ago, he made the same route and trip that "Crazy Drile" (Me)....it is something amazing, like a "deja vú", I can feel some kind of conection,(perhaps in one of my past life), with this incredible Journey into the REAL AUSTRALIA....take a look and tell me what do you think...

Hombre!! Ya estaba yo tb mirando la CNN! Me alegro de que mi post te inspirara.
Dice una pegatina que nunca me acuerdo de pegar "Las autoridades sanitárias advierten: estudiar MATA". Cuanta razón en sólo 6 palabras.

Queda poco por descubrir en la Tierra me temo, no es buena época para ser explorador. Un beso!!

hahahhahahhaha! burno verte por aca senorita Ò_ó
...yep habia estado (y sigo con muchos proyectos) bastante cupado y sin tiempo para mi pagina web....ahora de vuelta!
yep, es cierto, dale con el estudio pero no centres 100% de tu tiempo en ello....creeme, a veces aprendes mas en los viajes y vida misma que en los libros

Un beso de vuelta y felicitaciones por tu ultimo capitulo!

Crazy Drile

Crazy Drile™ said...

pd: queda mucho por descubrir en la Tierra....y si tienes razon, exploradores quedan pocos en estos tiempos...pero de lo poco, bueno!

Crazy Drile™ said...

Crazy Drile™ said...

Aloha soy+pequeno ....es una tierra apasionante, sobretodo el desierto de Australia y los aborigenes, que es la parte que ningun (o muy pocos) turistas visitan.

Ellos son los verdaeros amos y senores de esta tierra austral

aun queda mucho por descubrir....keep walking

and look the same style like your photos!

kiwi said...

you're right you should take a look in domadgee after this chapter. INCREDIBLE

Crazy Drile™ said...

Yeap! amazing mate! I can not believe that I made the same trip!
when I was looking these photos in Canberra Museum I was just thinking that maybe some of this aboriginal people could be the granfather or granmother to some people in my shots in Doomadgee!
really awesome mate!

take it easy,
greetings in New Zealand!

My husband immigrated to Australia from Italy and lived there 10 years until he was 18. He's still got a cousin and uncle there in Sydney.
He went back to Italy then I met him and I dragged him here to Southern California in USA. One day we'll go back to visit as Australia was where he really grew up.. even though he claims to be Italian, he's also part Aussie.
I'm going to give him the link... He'll enjoy the photos.

Don't know how you found my website, but I'm glad you did!! Be well!
