What stories this holds


This charming old cottage, seemingly abandoned in the midst of the Fleurieu Peninsula, caused me to wonder about its former inhabitants and their lives.
I also wondered about what appears to be a huge painting leaning against the outside of the home - had it been on an inside wall? why was it now outside? how was it apparently not damaged by the weather???
(... wished I'd made an effort to ask these questions of locals at the time !!!)

 
. . . and these wonderful gum trees were adjacent to the Ingalalla Waterfall (shown in a previous post) - their rich trunk and bark colours complement the surrounding environment.

Agreed it is strange to have a painting outside an abandoned building. Stories to be asked and told around campfires.

I love exploring and photographing abandoned old buildings. I too wonder about the history of such structures.

So many questions about that old place. I do wish we had the answers. It's very intriguing.

If only this building could talk, what tells it could share.

The cottage is indeed charming. How sad it has been abandoned. And how curious the painting is outside!

my goodness, a painting just sitting there like that. I wonder what the story is. Don't you just love these old stone huts.
Happy travels, and thank you so much for stopping by my blog this week.
