Places – Buildings, suburbs and city, the theme for the 2012 photo hunt was "The ordinary is Extraordinary".

The winning entry in the Places category was Burwood Rabbit Farm submitted by Kathy Steele.

Judges comments:

"There is something magic and otherworldly about this shot. The location has a sort of arid dustbowl Americana look. It makes you curious about the Burwood Rabbit Farm, and you can get the feeling you are looking into a lost world."

"Who knew that people raised Angora rabbits in Burwood? I love that this photo makes me think differently about the suburbs which have a (sometimes hidden) history all of their own. A thoroughly ordinary photo at the time, the subject matter is rendered interesting and unexpected by nothing more than the passage of time. And the dog is pretty cute, too."
