What a mood, Mick! This is a LIKEY for me. The color tones are just perfect for this scene. I bet this shed will hang on for a long time...if no one decides to build a strip mall there!
mick stead: I think it will last a while longer, it is on an old farm that is all overgrown and forgotten. thanks.
My question exactly about this building. I'll go back in the spring and see if it lasted the winter.

mick stead: thanks for the comment, I think my shed will last longer than the poor old biulding in the link you sent, great shot by the way.
Old sheds have such appeal..one can't help but wonder about them in their more pristine state. Lovely tones and mood.
mick stead: I agree with you, there are hundreds of them neer my home, I think I will get out and shoot some more. Thanks for the comment
Great moody shot. I like the colour tones
mick stead: Thank you very much.

Perfect moody shot. It could substitute as a prop for the new Harry Potter movie.
mick stead: Lol. if they use it in the next film I want a finders fee. thanks
Mick I hope you continue to shoot this on an annual basis to record the demise of it...and possibly in different seasons. Just love it richard.
mick stead: Thats a great idea Richard, I think I will. in the summer it will look nice with some colour to it I think. Thank you for the comment and Ideas
