This week Debbie has challenged us with the following:
Welcome to One Word Sunday, and over to all of you to join the challenge with your own dilapidated post.
A once magnificent Castle/House in Dumfries and Galloway, so sad to see it like this!, a slightly different edit of a photo I have previously used:
‘Kenmure’, Kenmure Castle, 2018.
This week Jenn at ‘Traveling at Wits End’ asks:
This week, the challenge is to go out and…
For this week I have chosen a photo of a tree that is in the process of Decay.
‘From the inside’, Puzzlewood, 2005.
And a second photo of the interior of Kenmure Castle, the roof gone and falling to Decay too quickly for a building of this beauty.
‘From the inside 2’, Kenmure Castle, 2018.
This Friday Something to Ponder About and The Snow Melts Somewhere have challenged us with:
Create a post sharing your interpretation of the weekly prompt – Mistakes.
Ok so where to go with this one? I have any number of badly out of focus, blurry photos to choose from, and also a number of shots of the lens cap or the floor, many mistakes in post, random filter choices and over sharpening, would any of these make interesting viewing for you all? Hmm maybe not.
So here is a picture of Kenmure Castle taken during last years visit to Dumfries and Galloway.
‘Derelict’, Kenmure Castle, Dumfries and Galloway, 2018.
So where is the mistake? There are too many buildings like this around the country, left un-lived in, and unloved, and once the roof has gone it takes very little time before they turn to ruin. This once magnificent building is slowly turning to ruin, this once proud building occupied up until the middle of the 1900’s is falling away, and to let it do so, like so many others may be a ‘mistake’.
For those of you who are not friends on Facebook, or GPlus here are some photos taken on the 4th day of our holiday in Scotland this year.
