Abandoned 2


In the summer I guess it presents a totally different image.

  1. Forgive me if this is a stupid question, but: is this for humans or for livestock? A house or a barn or a stable or .. or ... ?

  2. So many abandoned buildings. Has everyone left for the big city?

  3. I am astounded each time I venture into rural NSW just how much is abandoned. It is very beautiful, but sad at the same time.

  4. Martina, this is a not a stupid question. I was wondering the same thing.

    It would not be for livestock because we typically only house horses, pigs and poultry and it doesn't look at all like a stable, pig sty or chicken coop.

    If it was a house I would expect a chimney and there isn't one.

    That leaves it to be a shed but it is the wrong shape and has far to many doors, windows as well as floor boards so is unlikely to have started life as a shed.

    So I am opting for it having been an old and somewhat temporary house.

    AB, there are heaps and heaps of houses which are not abandoned but I don't find them interesting to photograph.

    Julie, I think we are just very attuned to old rusty stuff :-)

The filmy veil of greenness

We crossed the border into Victoria cruising down a lovely timbered road before breaking into the rich dairy country of Gippsland. It is wonderful to see the land green after more than 10 years of very dry weather. But most of the state of Victoria is still drought declared.

Musing:
The Pasture by Robert Frost
"I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too.

I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too."

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.
