Bare bulb

Posted by

This bare bulb hangs down from the ceiling of a barely standing farmhouse. The walls and ceiling are already breached, so a stint of bad weather will likely tumble the whole thing.

SONY SLT-A77V 13/10 second F/9.0 ISO 1600 30 mm (35mm equiv.)

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.

I am amazed that the light bulb is still intact. Wonder if it will survive the crash.

I like the yellow tones and the way you composed this interesting view.

A well named picture. The walls look to be decaying. A fine shot.

This was not enough to cover the wallpaper alone. Hammer and nails are also needed. And firmly believe in the future.

It almost gives the feeling of being enclosed in a box. I really like how you filled the frame with this room. Fabulous textures!

Great colours and textures of the flaking and peeling walls and ceiling.
