Derelict House – Lesmurdie, Western Australia

The tin lined bedroom walls are still adorned with layers of wallpaper which is now peeling and flaking with the elements. I can imagine this was a comfortable cottage where people felt at home.

I live in the Northern Territory of Australia. It is rugged, remote and ancient. I love to capture moments that we may easily miss or pass by. I need to slow down, live life, notice the little things and breathe….. rather than rush to my next meeting through the artificial world. Beauty is all around us, the more you look, the more you see…
Unless stated, my images are straight from the camera with minimal processing.
