do you like shacks?? i took photos of stacks!!
I have loved shacks, sheds, barns, machinery-lean-tos & rambling old broken down cottages, forever. I recently took a string of photos of such visual delights up & down the Pacific Highway between Sydney & Brisbane. I wasn't sure if they would be well received & posted them on Instagram . . . it appears many of you like #stacksofshacks too!!
Some are quite long barns, industrial & booming in their day.
They have been left to the elements . . .
to reveal the most beautiful weathered wood & rust.
Really loved the feedback on this image - referred to as a 'salty car window at high speed' filter. It's not perfect & i think that makes it even more special, even with part of the car window blocking out the bottom corner. I'm not a professional photographer & don't pretend to be either.
The dramatic skies & lush paddocks add to the character of this cottage.
This mossy shed was my favourite, collapsed & consumed by the landscape.
I much prefer these open machinery sheds with light flooding through . . .
because these dark enclosed sheds freak. me. out. Creepy!!
The lean on this old gutted barn is amazing.
You can just spy the Clarence River in the background of this image of an open shed near Grafton, so this would now be completely flooded over. I've seen some lovely old wooden shacks lifted off their foundings & floating flooded rivers in Queensland on the news. Crushing.
It was pretty lush & waterlogged when i took these images a month ago, the water will have nowhere to go but create a massive flood plain. Heartbreaking for the locals. Stay safe flood victims, love Posie
