Dilapidated Shed




The old shed leans as its timbers ever so slowly give way to the incessant demands of gravity

From the holes in the roof and the trees growing in front of the door it is obvious that no one has used this shed in years. Surprisingly, to the right just out of the frame is a house; not quite as decrepit and still occupied.

I reduced the saturation and toned this photograph to achieve the effect you see here.

Amazing how long some structures can remain standing. Looks like one stiff wind would bring down the shed. Nice shot.

I love these old structures. It is amazing that they can still stand when they look like they should just fall down!!! Great detail in the wood.. nicely done :) :)

Great technique to give the shed even more character. the leafless trees just add to the forlorn look. I do like this.

I like what you've done with this!
Neat shot!
Kind of sad that they would let the old shed get in this state.
