Images of a Big Island

‘Cheshunt’ Buildings

Is it possible to have “photographers block”? If so, I think I have a case of it right now, just can’t seem to get the results I am looking for at the moment.
Anyway, for this post I will stay in Tasmania. I have previously posted about one of these buildings before but at the time the light was pretty flat so wider views of the old building were a little bit dull with a blown out sky.
On my last visit to Tasmania I wanted to get some more shots of this dilapidated building, so I did an early morning drive to try and get the low sunlight that I thought would be a little more interesting. Glad I did, as some other outbuildings on the same property were lit very nicely by the early morning light as well. Not sure what these outbuildings were used for, maybe workers quarters,stables, etc, but I am glad I stumbled upon them while rambling down a country road just following my nose!
These will one day be gone, but for now they add some historic context to a world which is becoming more homogenised.

  1. Beautiful images, how come old buildings are the most interesting?

  2. Thanks Tracey! I guess they are interesting because their history always seems to fire our imagination.

      They inspired our imagination also and we took the same photos although do not profess to be professional in any way. I wonder if we had have ventured in to the house if we would have been welcomed and had an explanation, and possibly a history lesson? Taswegians are usually very friendly people.

  3. Really like the ‘abandoned’ shot…the orange in the roof next to the blue skies is a really nice combination.
