Bicheno to Richmond

From Bicheno I traveled south down the Tasmanian East Coast, spending time in some of the little towns along the way until I reached Richmond.  I did not go to the Freycinet National Park or Wineglass Bay as I had seen them on a previous trip.  I did not have a lot of time to spare as this was the only part of my trip which had time restrictions, because I needed to reach Hobart on a particular day.   Richmond is one of the most historic towns in Tasmania with the original 1823 convict built bridge still standing as well as many other original sandstone buildings in the main street and local area.  I found it full of tourist centred galleries and kitch souvenir shops, very commercialized and difficult to photograph without lots of advertising signs spoiling the view.  Instead I took shots of worn original door steps and wondered about all those folk who had crossed the thresholds over the years. What stories the stones might tell if they could speak.
