Unfortunate Endings

Today a fairly upbeat, hopefully, look at how things sometimes have unfortunate endings. I've tried to avoid the obvious broken down buildings and look for something a bit more quizzical.

There's a whole world of ideas out there, so it's just a matter of grasping them and turning them into something tangible. So, unfortunate endings......

Potentially an undesirable end.

A derelict boat, but in the middle of the woods. Very strange.

The fascinating interior of a derelict bothy on the Isle of Skye. Who lived there? Why did they abandon everything?

A remote hide that seemed a reasonable prospect from its interior, but looked rather more dubious when I went round to look at how it was built.

Always Carry a Camera

I make a point of always carrying a camera, just to capture anything and everything that catches my eye as we carry on with the minutiae of life. I was in Atherton and just heading for the shop that sells fuses and passed a small alleyway that used t...
