Red Rules

Taken for no other reason than I thought it looked pretty.  A change from my usual abandoned building shots.


  1. It does, indeed. In the good old days, cottages on farms were not painted on the outside ... nor panelled on the inside!

    This one has at least a tank on each end, and a shed, and the wierdest place for a garage ... and look at those tiny tiny windows ... is that to the south?

  2. That shade of red on a country shed reminds me of rural America for some reason.

  3. What a terrific shot. Perfect.

  4. Julie, I don't have your nose for north, south, east and west so can't say. And those windows are small aren't they. I think it was more open on the non-garage side.

    Winam, it's the colour. Barns are often this colour in rural America but rarely here.

    Jim, thanks.

  5. Pretty is always reason enough, at least for me.

    I like how you framed this.

  6. The red pops up and the composition is lovely.

  7. One of the best reasons for taking a photo I reckon :)

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.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

And I wrap up this trip with the Royal Hotel at Ganman.

A stark white forest

Actually the poem says "The stark white ring-barked forests, all tragic to the moon" but this white snow gum forest is not ring-barked, nor is it their normal healthy white ... this is the result of the bushfires that swept through the region in 2003. They are reshooting from the base and will recover but it will be a slow process.

At this altitude snow gums grow low and are usually twisted into fantastic shapes. The stuff of many awesome photographs, typically in the snow.
From The Snow Gum by Douglas Stewart
"It is the snow-gum silently,
In noon’s blue and the silvery
Flowering of light on snow.
Performing its slow miracle
Where upon drift and icicle
Perfect lies its shadow."
