In need of a little TLC.........................or a complete rebuild WinkWinkWink
This beach hut is to be found in one of the small gardens in Kings Heath Park.
The beach has a number of grasses that grow in sand, a rope bridge and an abandoned shell of a boat, as well as the hut.
I had another afternoon there on Sunday - not as bright as when I had been 2 weeks previously - so much better for photos

Many thanks to Jenn for her User Award for yesterday's upload - also from these gardens - it was very much appreciated SmileSmileSmile

My vote would be for the TLC -- rather than the complete rebuild. Is that a fire pit in front of the steps? That looks like a disaster waiting to happen.
Very nice processing -- a very inviting image.

Thanks Annette and Walter SmileSmile
Yes there seems to be a fire laid in front of the wooden shack - maybe that's the way to get a re-build Walter WinkWink

I'll bet there were many happy hours spent here.
There's evidence of plants and flowers outside the 'property'
which surely means it was loved by it's owners.

My kind of art / photo. Composition is perfect. I had a place similar to this in the Beaufort mountains on Vancouver Island. 'Unofficial' . My pet bear came ' snorting' by every morning just after six am. After several years it become a coffee hut for local loggers. Your image is a delight! TG
