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 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.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

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