Mitchells Cottage – Alexandra, New Zealand
Mitchells Cottage is a surerb example of what living would have been like in the 1880’s in Central Otago. It was built by gold miner, Andrew Mitchell, for his brother and sister-in-law. Building began in 1880 and he used local stone masonry techniques he had learned from his father.
There were so many different ways to photograph this wonderful old building it was hard to decide which image to choose. what drew me to this one was the fact that you get a real sense of the hillside and the harsh surrounds.
