beautiful decay

Thursday, 2 June 2011

Last weekend I had a little adventure back to my homeland! Looking round a derelict space it struck me how beautiful the decay was. I love this old rusty switch, which to me looks like a face.

 Peeling off paint makes a fantastic texture

in the most beautiful colours, pinks and mustards and creams

Nature reclaiming the man made, strange to see wallpaper in a domestic space but plants growing where the carpets should be. Quite eerie.


  1. how wonderful. i love the old rusty switch face - he's almost blinking too. the magic green carpet is a little eerie but its also like a secret land within old walls. so beautiful.

  2. What lovely pics:-)

  3. Wondeful. The green carpet reminded me of a story I was told about a woman who scattered lawn seed over her ex-husband's carpet ..then watered it... and shut it up for the summer while he and his lover were away travelling!

  4. I love the old rusty switch face! Lovely pics!

  5. Phwoar! Lovely, you might enjoy the 28 days later forum, they take lovely pictures of abandoned buildings and things, very ghostly and faded. I think it's just enjoy!
