Mobil Handy Mart, Boorowa

Ah, another trip up the road to Boorowa and a quick stop to buy petrol. Notice the ridiculous price of almost $1.56 per litre? I’m told by locals that, with just one service station in town, there’s an obvious monopoly on fuel.

I must confess that these pictures are a little misleading. The dilapidated, yet beautiful, old cottage is not the Mobil service station — it’s actually next door, but the placement of the signage certainly gives that impression!

I’m listening to “All My Trials” by Anita Carter (Johnny Cash’s sister-in law) as I upload this. The mix of her haunting voice with these rustic images is like a weightless bird soaring across that deep blue sky.
