I passed this sad-looking building on the Geelong-Ballan Road yesterday. A thoroughly miserable day – cold, wet, grey – and this dwelling looked so forlorn sitting there against the colourless sky.

    passed this a few weeks back and thinking it would make for a good photographic opportunity, this has come out a treat Heather

  • Thanks John. I ‘captured’ a swag of similar shots – most of them, like this one, taken from my car because it was raining!
