A pic of Bunbury City WA.  

Note the circular Home Units roughly centre of the pic ?  They used to be grain silos.  Apparently at the end of their useful life the cost of removing them was prohibitive - so they were converted into Residential Units.  Neat idea IMHO.  They now command good prices & offer lovely views.

Thanks BagoDJIoperator84
You do have to wonder what the demolition cost would have been 'cos I bet the conversion to units wasn't exactly cheap !

Thanks Montfrooij
Hopefully over the next couple of weeks I'll be able to get a few nice 'bush' shots during a trip to our (old) Goldfields.
Really looking forward to it - I love the bush.  Camped out,  small fire, flickering light,  beautiful sunsets.  Huh,  starting to sound like a tourist brochure !!?

Aloha Manx,

     Really!  Great idea!  I think we have a similar situation here.  It would be worth it to look into it now after your photo.

Aloha and Drone On!

Aloha Manx,

     Corn!  There is a little known fact that Hawai'i has three growing seasons for corn.  Kahuku Sweet Corn is the local name for the seed corn we eat - delicious!

     It may still be, but it used to be that 80% of the seed corn for the Untied States is grown in Hawai'i.  I had no idea and found it hard to believe when I first heard it.

     Currently, we have lost our sugar cane and pineapple agribusiness.  We have started cacao and otherwise diversified our farming for sustainability.  But our big cash crop still appears to be seed corn.

Aloha and Drone On!

But , but,  where is it grown ?  Aren't you living on mountainous/volcanic islands ?

Was a clever move eh ?  Like I said earlier,  the cost of demolishing them must have been huge,  because the conversion wouldn't have been that cheap to accomplish.

Aloha Manx,

     Not all of each island is mountainous and only the Big Island (Hawai'i) has active volcanos.  Maui has a dormant volcano, Haleakala.  We used to have big agribusiness areas.  There is plenty of room in Hawai'i to grow seed corn.  Look on Google Earth.

Aloha and Drone On!
