When Josh Corke lost his job at a fast food outlet, he could have chosen to draw the curtains and sit at home playing video games.
Instead he set himself a unique challenge: to photograph every heritage-listed place in South Australia.
"I've been struggling to find another (job), so in an effort to keep myself sane I tried to find the biggest challenge I was interested in," he said.
His quest took him to about 30 sites around the Murraylands on Tuesday, including a drive out as far as Mantung, Galga and Bakara.
"I'm not sure I'm going to be able to get every single one (in the state) – some of them are on private property or very hard to get to," he said.
"But in the Murraylands most are by the side of the road, or abandoned ruins, things like the wells out on the road to Loxton and an abandoned homestead out near Murray Bridge."
He has also visited more than 200 sites around Adelaide, mostly in the central business district, and perhaps 50 throughout the Fleurieu.
He is not yet sure what he will do with his photographic collection when he finishes the task.
"That's something I need to work out, whether I contact the heritage department, whether I'm going to put them all online or send them to someone interested in the project."
