Facts about the image, Artisans Workshop Omaru New Zealand

Located on the east coast of New Zealand’s South Island near a penguin colony the old railway at Omaru is home to a number of artisans workshops. Artisans workshop Omaru New Zealand is one of those poor railway workshops that has become a classical and beautiful piece of architecture from humble beginnings over time due to a certain industrial charm that cannot be explained simply.

Of all the old railway huts this one stood out the most with the geraniums and old penny-farthing bicycle leaning against the wall. Having seen the composition and noticed just enough light entering the hut to capture some of the woodwork inside it the decision to create a photograph here came very easily.

This whole area is now a disused terminus on New Zealand’s narrow gauge railway network, when you arrive here the first thing you will probably notice is the historic dual gauge steam operated railway crane which was imported from England over a century ago and now stands with its jib erect in the old sidings surrounded by the old goods sheds and workshops that have found themselves new tenants since the closure of the railway.
