1. Abandoned houses


I have taken lots of photos of abandoned houses but this is the one that pleases me most.  I like the silvery grey tones of the grass and aged timber.

  1. It is a lovely house. I love how its colours seem to be blend into the plains.

  2. And the undulating paddocks ... and the tanks still not pilfered ... and the squareness of the structures.

    1. I like the framing, how the rise in the land just skims the top of the building. And yes it is great that the tanks are still there.

  3. Beautiful photo. It has that uniquely Australian feel.

    1. Yes it does have an Aussie feel. We read of people heading off to France and Italy to restore old rural buildings but I somehow feel this one and many others in Oz are for the termites not a repair job.

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.
