Forgotten Shed (One Four Challenge: Week 1)

School is back in for the children next week and I’m so looking forward to it if only for routine. Today sadly I totally missed Stacy’s One Photo Focus over at Visual Venturing with a great capture by  Benjamin Rowe of Aperture64. Dang it!

And now I realize I’ve almost missed the One Four Challenge. Then again, technically I haven’t missed it as really it’s a Monday thing, but Monday doesn’t really work for me hence I’ve made it a Friday thing. Anyways, here ’tis.


This is what appears to be an old shed, or may have even been a small caretakers house, once connected to the railway. With only freight coming in by rail now, this building now stands abandoned, slowly being encased by trees.

The editing this week was all very neat and simple as all I did was crop, boosted the contrast to give it more depth, finishing off with a hint of vignetting. Just hope I haven’t used up all my party tricks now on Week 1!

  1. Funky old buildings are so much fun to work with. I like the crop – it really makes it appear that the building has been abandoned for so long that the forest has grown up around it, and someone walking through would only discover it if they were really alert. This crop makes me really curious to find what’s inside.

    • Lol, I’m curious now as to what’s inside now also. The funniest thing though was my husband drives past this shed to go fishing or to take our son dirt biking yet had never noticed it. He’s now planning a special trip back down there just to check out the shed, seeing it’s actually there! 🙂

  2. Great image to work with Joanne, I like the crop to bring the focus to the shed. Like Ben I find the vignette a bit heavy and intrusive, particularly in the top LH corner, its quite obvious. Tons of potential tho 🙂

  3. This is a lovely photo of this old shed Joanne – a great subject to work with. Looking forward to see your other editions for the month.
    We’re just beginning with One Four again today, so you didn’t miss 😃 In fact you have the whole week to post if you need it.
    Have a great one 😃
