TOP TEN in the Red Door – Three Day Challenge in the Windows and Doors Group, 23rd February, 2014

This no-longer-used structure is, I think, an old signal box which I found at the Kiwi Reserve and Museum in Whangarei, North Island, New Zealand. In the reserve grounds there is an old railway track with a host of unused, converted or restored buildings relating to railways. This is one of them.

Camera used: Pentax K30

I live in the UK and in 2011 when I joined Red Bubble,started experimenting with different settings and angles. I enjoy finding suitable pictures of flowers, Scotland, reflections, lamps and seats and have now branched out into different subjects.
In 2013 I finally realised my dream of visiting Australia and New Zealand. Whilst there I purchased a Pentax camera so have been able to expand my portfolio of flower macros among other new and exciting subjects.

    Looking at this makes me think of your shed. LOL. Great find Lesley.

  • Ah, well! You wouldn’t recognise my shed now. I have had someone come to clear it out for me. Thanks for your comments on this pic.

    what an unusual little shed! I love how the paint is withered, and the old glass in the windows is fabulous!

  • Thanks Nicole. I loved it for all the same reasons

    It doesn’t look like a signal box to me, but more like where they stored kero and lamps for the trains.

  • Well, so it might have been. Unfortunately for me there was no description with it so I have just had to guess.
