Weekly Photo Challenge: Abandoned

I couldn’t think what to post for this week’s challenge, then I realised that I see these two buildings every day…

An abandoned bungalow in my village, it looks so sad.

And this delightful edifice is what I can see outside my window while I am at work. I have looked at this building for well over 15 years and people wonder why I am fed up working here!!!

'Printmaker Nancy Power's work reflects the life around her. Be it a changing rural landscape, the decaying plants in her garden, or her collection of hand crafted ceramics, she finds inspiration from many sources. Deliberately eclectic in subject matter, her work is harmonised by her colour palette and distinctive inking process. Nancy uses the reduction method of lino printmaking; carving away at just one block for each consecutive colour to reveal the final image. By inking from dark to light, as opposed to the more traditional light to dark, Nancy's work has engaging depth and colour layering.'

  1. Aw, sad bungalow! Old abandoned buildings bring up such a range of feelings… it’s always interesting when you’re driving out in the middle of nowhere, down a highway, and see these old crumbling buildings on the roadside. You just know they are full of stories.

    1. Yes Aussa, you are so right, I always wonder what the story is and why nobody lives in these old buildings anymore. This bungalow has been empty forever and it’s a shame as the plot of land it’s on is pretty huge, it could be so nice.
      But hey, you see the other picture of the view out of my office window and now you’ll understand completely why I am on the internet all day!!

    1. Ha! Yes, you are right Dan, although I think I would have freaked out if I had seen anything in the window. Also, I couldn’t get close enough to get a different angle or reflection…unless I sneak in….
