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!

Doorway into Yesterday (Wordless Wednesday)


Doorway into Yesterday

High on a Hill…

What’s that Julie Andrew song from The Sound of Music that begins with… “high on a hill”? That song always plays through my mind when I see this house high on the hill.

Abandoned house high on a hill!

From our road-side vantage point there is NO apparent road or even a PATH that leads to it. Who built it and for what reason?

For now it sits, ostensibly abandoned, keeping watch over the water and all of us who pass beneath it. The question is… “mum, how much longer?”
