Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Barns or Any Dilapidated Buildings


Dilapidated or Picturesque?

As an area that once had many more farms and orchards than it does now the Huon Valley has its share of abandoned sheds in various states of disrepair. As photo subjects I rather like them.

Not the worst I’ve seen but this old shed could at least use a new roof.
There are plenty of old timber sheds around the Huon Valley. This one definitely has a lean.
Dilapidated shed, Channel Highway near Cygnet. Spotted from the car while out for a drive. Not sure what is keeping it up.

And finally my own dear departed rustic shed, demolished a couple of years ago to make way for the pergola.

Born in England in 1957 my family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. David passed away in 2015 and I'm here on my own now but I have Cindy the dog and Polly the cat to keep me company. I currently co-write two Wordpress blogswith my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and a "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania.

    1. Mine came down just over two years ago because we needed to build a path and shelter in the back yard but there are many still in use around here even if only to shelter old unused farm equipment.
