More abandon

The next part of the plan was to divert from the highway so some of the small towns on the way.  I was delighted by this wonderful abandoned building on the outskirts of Gunning.  This is one of the most interesting I have ever taken with all the assorted building materials from earth to timber to tin against the backdrop of blossom.


  1. This is just a perfect shot with the speckelty blossoms adding a touch of soft - love this photo!

  2. The blossom takes it into a different sphere altogether, Joan. Is that mud and saplings in that wall?

  3. Yes it is mud and saplings. And the out building looks like mud bricks.

  4. I agree, it is interesting, all sorts of building materials used.

  5. What a bewdie!!
    And don't the blossoms set it off beautifully.

    Actually there is a website you might like - it's in Russian but you can put it into google translate to read it. Amazing abandoned buildings!!

  6. Wonderful shot, capturing the mystery of times past. I can almost hear the gentle buzz of bees!

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.

Royal Hotel - Grong Grong

But wait, no trip is complete until a Royal or two has been added to the collection.  This one is at Grong Grong.
