This rambling old house is situated in the O'Halloran Hill Reserve only a short drive from home. Since the last time I photographed the rainbow monkey quilt i had been looking for a suitable place to photograph the next quilt but not quite so far from home. So I was pleasantly surprised to find this spot only a stones throw from home..I must have past this place a million times but never really registered it being there. In fact I regularly walk the other side of the reserve which is divided by the expressway, so it limits movement across the whole of the reserve without crossing bridges or traffic.
This rambling house is right next to the main road and is really only a few steps away from a major road at peak hour but really feels like you are in another world when you cross the boundary by straddling the barbed wire fence. (Fortunately this time my jeans managed to remain unscathed)
The days are getting shorter and the sun was already laying low across the hills casting long shadows but I love the play of light and the golden tones that the suns rays throw at this time of the day.
Check out the weedy growth on the top of the wall protruding up to the sky
This one is taken from the inside looking out towards the road across the field.
Oh and by the way that is charity quilt no. 1 finally finished. Lovely and bright ( there is plenty wrong with it but there is also plenty right about it!) The grammar is really bad I know but you get the picture
