Time stood still (1 of 3)

Euchareena is like a town that stopped. This dray isn't in a museum, it's in the paddock near the house, just as if one day they parked the dray, put the horse out the pasture and time stood still.

By Arnold Bennett
"You wake up in the morning, and lo! your purse is magically filled with twenty-four hours of the magic tissue of the universe of your life. No one can take it from you. No one receives either more or less than you receive. Waste your infinitely precious commodity as much as you will, and the supply will never be withheld from you. Moreover, you cannot draw on the future. Impossible to get into debt. You can only waste the passing moments. You cannot waste tomorrow. It is kept for you."


  1. Great matching of text and image, Joan.

    The rim that is coming off is so sad. The entire image is sad, isn't it. But full of old wood and rusty metal ... and unfullfilled dreams, perhaps.

    The Bennett quote is thought-provoking ...

  2. I allways enjoy your shots on abandoned places and wonder what were the stories 'behind' this...
