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.

    1. Yes that is what appeals to me in it too.

  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.

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
