Oh wow - imagine how beautiful that could be is they refurbished it into some sort of lviing or working space.

These beautiful reflections add so much life to the images that the shed doesn't look so abandoned anymore.

Wonderful shots, you can see so much when enlarged. I can imagine the tree was planted in front of the building much after 1932.

carolyn, this could be a Window Views photo for my meme! But I love it for Weekend Reflections too! :)

Julie said...

Built in 1932 and abandoned already. That is a sad commentary on our modern society.

The reflections in the window are so very clear and colourful. A lovely entry for our meme this weekend.

there's something slightly surreal about that second photo. I hope someone will renovate that house...

Thank you for sharing these photos. I visited your country four times but I did not encounter these scenes of abandoned sheds like this. I am also moved by the wonderful reflections on the deserted shed windows!

Ebie said...

Look at the clear reflections of the trees! I could even see the foliage on the second photo!

Oh Carolyn, gorgeous reflections. You captured the light at the perfect moment. That would be a fun building to explore.
