Abandoned 1

Time to take a drive and look around to look for things abandonded and beautiful. I'm not quite sure what to make of the drainage system at this place.


  1. It is strange. It does not seem delapidated. Just a building made from old materials. Is that a Rheem system they have the guttering sort of slanting down to? Wierd ...

  2. Interesting - that's what we do here, too. Collecting the rain water from the gutters in barrels and use this water mostly for watering garden plants.

  3. Oh, now I'm envious. I really, really wanted to make a rainwater retention system for our house in St. Louis. But then we moved and that dream was left behind.

  4. It's not rainwater harvesting that is unusual ... every rural property would do this for the drinking water in their home. What I don't get is the collection tank (which looks like an old hot water system) or the tin can type funnel at the top.

    Not sure about it being a house either Julie but there looked like a backyard dunny nearby which could make it a house. However, there were the remains of an old dwelling (brick chimney) nearby also so it could have been the shed.

The tiny camera's tiny battery ran out so I went back to my reading. The note with the sculpture says "This bronze and copper sculpture contrasts a series of small human forms with the architectural weight of on oversize staircase. The artwork has a philosophical aspect by reflecting on the effect of reading on the spirit - 'the more I read the smaller I feel'." Crikey, I dunno about you but if reading made me feel like that I'd stop.

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.


Is that a Coolibah tree beside the abandoned house? Every Australian knows about Coolibah trees because the bush ballad Waltzing Matilda is nigh on our unoffical national anthem but most of us live nowhere near the inland where they grow. Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong, Under the shade of a Coolibah tree, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me. Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me.
