Ghost House

 

Yes it’s a door. It just seemed like the right time to use this picture as a talking point on here. I guess it could be to do with the fact that a lot of new doors have opened to me recently. Scouts being a major one, the possibilities and new things I can learn and do with the scouts are amazing. The thought of doing all those geeky camp and survival things makes me happy.Yes it’s a door. It just seemed like the right time to use this picture as a talking point on here.

I took this picture in Ireland. I decided to go for a long trek down some abandoned lane to see where it went. I was surprised to find this relatively new house a couple of miles down the lane in the middle of no where. I was even more surprised to see how overgrown the grounds around it had become, It was obvious that no one had lived there for the last couple of years at least. The contrast between the relatively new door and the aging thorn-bush growing up in front it really spoke to me. I wondered what the house would be like in the inside. It was set in an early spooky side of a hill with a small forest growing near by. There were no sounds at all which set my senses on edge. I could only manage a few pictures before running away with thoughts of ghosts watching me.

Every time I look at this picture, I think about the spooky house I found and wonder if any one has re-claimed it from nature yet.

I haven’t had much Of a chance to go out taking photos over Christmas. Mom has been over and it’s a full time job cleaning up after her, she’s so messy!
I downloaded an app called snapseed (it was free from apples 12 days of christmas). It took me a while to get use to using the app but once I did I was very happy with the results. I immediately decided to re-edit a load of old photos Id taken a while back. I was particularly pleased with this shot of a white Bengal tiger from west midlands safari park.
