The netty door 2

By mrswoolybill
Bleaker, grittier in b&w, an altogether chillier experience...
Netty: North East dialect word meaning privy, outside toilet.
Taken as found.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Definitely gritty but with a touch of humour. Have to say the door looks in pretty good nick for an outside toilet!!

Made me smile and that can't be a bad thing, fab shot I reckon Beamish! Surely no one in this day and age has an outside (netty) not heard it called that before! We had one as a child it was the one and only so you didn't have a choiceSmile no bathroom eitherSad

I especially like the mentioned bleak and gritty look of this great capture, Moira. Wonderful! The whitish grey on the tips of the shoes and that line adds a lot to the photo.
