Cottage Ruins from the Yorke Penisula

The above Vimeo is actually a flipagram I recently created after our recent trip to South Australia. Over that side of Australia, it is quite common to see cottage-ruins visibly abandoned and left to crumble away in crisp-golden fields – an unavoidable consequence of modern day farming methods and survival I suspect.

These ruins are still so beautiful in their state of disrepair and I truthfully feel pigeon and livestock poop do very little to tarnish their beauty. If only they too could easily be lifted on the back of a wide loader and be transported across the country on big wheels. I think I too would be raising my hand for one of these renovator delights.

The walls of this cottage in particular still carry such grace and after walking through this one, I do actually believe the spirit of a house lives on well after its occupants have left it. I am very interested to know if a stone cottage in disrepair with oodles of character albeit animal poop would be on your wish list too??

P.S I spotted the above whilst driving down town Adeliade…I’m not sure what it was advertising exactly. I do recognise it as a quote by Eleanor Roosevelt and I have officially decided to take it on board! It shouldn’t be too hard to achieve, should it?? I am bound to enjoy some company on this one so do let me know if you feel like playing along too! xx
