I love when you share these types of pictures. It reminds me to rethink the way I am taking pictures while I am out and about.


Fantastic photos. Ghost towns are so sad and interesting. To think they were once filled with tons of people going about, living their lives and then it's all gone.



The siding patterns almost look like waves and sand.


LOVE the theme, Dominique! You've found beauty in items that most of us would simply walk past.

Jen-That's one of the reasons I like taking Photowalks with our local group. You go out to what is usually a familiar place, but you're concentrating on just taking photos...and when we all share our photos afterward in our Flickr group, you see how other folks approached the same subjects.
We were able to spend a lot of time out at Port Oneida that day, and our major purpose was just to go and take photos.

Gypsy-There were some great spots in this town where you could really visualize how these folks must have lived. A bit spooky maybe, but fascinating!

Susan-Now that you mention it, that siding -does- sort of look like the ridged pattern formed by the action of waves against the sand!

Wanderluster-Thanks! I loved the different textures and patterns I found out there with the old wood.

These are nice images, I enjoy photographs that portray not only pattern, but texture as well. You have a good eye for the small things that make interesting photos :)

Like I told Jen, I do thing doing the local Photowalks has helped me develop more of an eye for interesting subjects.
