Memory is getting expensive these days, and just purchased a new server. Lol

ha ha

@Patriot something gone weird with image uploads? Even modestly sized images now say they're too large? (i cbf' going and re-exporting photos to compress the file size, forum has always done what it needed to do... and bandwidth / high res screens is everywhere these days!)

I'm not sure why this site is serving large un-optimised photos anyhow. It is just costing data and performance. A couple of the photos above are 4000 px wide when they only need to be 1200 or at the most 1920 and with compression they will probably be less than 10% in size.

I love it that you are getting out and about. But I must admit that most 'silo art' I've seen in S.A. and Vic. does little to impress me and I'd rather see the silos painted plain white. Yeh, I know most will disagree and I'll get howled down for suggesting such!? :)
I do admit that 'the proof is in the pudding', and it does generate tourist visitation to these communities. However, the artist in me would love to see more creativity (doing something original/different/more creative). This gives an example applicable to an urban site in Vancouver, Canada.

I went to Granville Island in 1997. I don’t remember seeing the silos. I reckon plain white would be pretty forgettable.
On our trip I had my young fella navigating and looking up facts on the places we were going through. The silo art was a bit of a detour but a small price to pay to have a navi instead of someone glued to the internet elsewhere. The artwork was pretty good.
