“Your roof is bewhiskered, your floor is a-slant, Your walls seem to sag and to swing; I’m trying to find just your faults, but I can’t — You poor, tired, heart-broken old thing! I’ve seen when you’ve been the best friend that I had, Your light like a gem on the snow; You’re sort of a part of me — Gee! but I’m sad; I hate, little cabin, to go.”
excerpt from ‘Good-Bye, Little Cabin’, Robert William Service (1874 – 1958)
A classic Australian scene, depicting a deserted and decaying old wood and tinned roof shack, with the harsh but beautiful Australian bush as a backdrop. The first image in this series.
This wonderful old shack is just outside of Melbourne, in the Kangaroo Grounds/Christmas Hills area. I’ve put directions on my Flickr stream if anyone is interested in checking the place out. You can find them here.
