Some photos

First photo below is one that I have in my locker at work to remind me of home. The Jacarandas are in full bloom and the grass is green. This one is from around November after a fairly dry winter. They should be in full bloom again as again we've had one of those dry, winters up this way.

Below that is a well worn control panel from a bottle labelling machine. I'll get a better shot later. You can feel thousands of hours of work and hundreds of different hands have operated this panel in times gone by.

Below that is a manifold station which acts as a central point when you transfer liquids from main tanks to lines.

Then below that is the largest bearing I've ever seen. It's off a rinser and is about 7 feet (2 metres) across. It had worn on one side. Mechanical technicians and old time operators were around to see it when it came out to see the light of day for the first time in 14 years. It has done billions of revolutions in that time.

Another photo below of a steel staircase to a mezzanine floow above in a pokey alleyway. Nice lighting on this one.

And the last one is of some forklifts parked neatly away at the end of the day.
