well done, lovely light and great old shack, love the angles.
Thanks Nick! A fence had to be erected around the old place as cattle were camping & leaning on it, thus the angle of the front wall….Cheers mate….. getting some rain over there yet?
Brilliant shot mate, definately part of history here, it’s about to fall down..
Thanks Adam, well mate it’s stood like that for the last 5 years that I know off!! Must be built of sterner stuff than it looks….Thanks for your commentCheers Lee

Nooo Virginiayou can’t be THAT old, he was around in the 20’s….He sure did get around thoughCheers Lee
haha yes I know re long time ago, just his reputation lingered. Knew a person rented a house he lived in …or was captured ..?? Trying to remember another baddie, Skelton? thinking something to do with skeleton as his nickname we kids in the 40 and 50 s panicking , kept escaping a lot-
Aaah Virginia you obviously lived in a colourful place and timethanks for sharing…I grew up in Alexandra… not much happened there!!!!Cheers Lee
gosh I ended up doing research! Skinner ! ha-ha kids really loved that name. Escapee 4 times… not much happened to us either, lived amongst the apple orchards at Wantirna , excitement was chasing an old smelly escapee billy goat called Archimedes around the school grounds.
What a big life Virginia…what fun as a kidSkinner, eh!!!! Not sure I know him…Smelly billy goats… dangerous buggers!!!!
