The Old Farm Shed by Michael John

This old dilapidated farmer’s shed stands beside an equally old house at Windsor, NSW, Australia.

It was captured on a misty, rainy day late 2009. In July 2010 I returned to visit the old shed, only to find that it has fallen over (see other photo).

Windsor is the third-oldest place of British settlement on the Australian continent, established in 1791. This shed probably dates from the 1800s.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.
