This is another thing I have told myself all year I need to shoot. So finally, with ten days to spare, I stopped the car, got out and took some time to grab a few frames. I do wish I could have got closer for some detail shots of this derelict old cottage, but this was as close as I could get. I think it suits the black & white.
This old shed wall caught my eye as I drove down a country goat track on Sunday. I love the mixture of materials – use whatever is on hand at the time to fix things up. Leads to loads of character…
This run down old shed was swamped by the floodwaters. The farmhouse next to it was also halfway up it’s first floor in water! There was just no escaping the torrents.
I have driven past the ruins of this place at East Maitland so many times and thought it would be great to shoot. I have no idea what it used to be, so leave a comment if you do. Once again, I had to shoot from behind a six foot wire fence, but luckily there is a hill leading up to the railway bridge where I could shoot from. There are probably some great shots to be had inside, but alas, there is no way in.
This little shed in Harrington caught my eye, with peeling paint, and the Closed sign which suggests it was once some kind of shop. It doesn’t look like it is much of anything anymore…
This is another shed on the same property as the one I posted earlier this week. I have since found out that this property is in fact an old dairy. There used to be eight dairies along this road years ago, how things have changed! Another little bit of history captured. Don’t forget to click the image for a larger view.
I have been out shooting things related to farms in preparation for a competition, and this old shed was one that caught my eye. There are so many old, run down sheds around on farms, and they are are a haven for photographers! The afternoon sun caught all the different textures and rusty goodness in this one.
I captured this old shed at the back of the Pilot’s Station on Newcastle Harbour because I loved the look of it – rustic, rough around the edges. I also love all the different textures in the image. Tin, wood, metal mesh, the stone wall and of course the barnacles. So when I came to post it, I wanted to know what the building was. A little Googling later, I found it described as “one enduring relic, the navy cadet drill hall TS Tobruk”. I have to agree “An Old Relic” is the perfect description of this shed, and I love the “TS Tobruk” sign above the door.
