Finally got round to photographing a derelict shed, on a bit of land adjacent to 'my' country park.

I had meant to do it, ever since I saw it first, a couple of years ago, but have now finally done it.

I suppose it must have 'matured' a fair bit in the meantime, so it probably looks even more appealing.

Changed it to monochrome to give it that extra edge.

This is it:

I had the luxury of having a day wandering around London - although I do this most days, this was special because I had the whole day at my disposal rather than an hour or two squeezed in amongst other things (usually work related) and so was able to meet a chum for lunch and saunter the streets snapping nothing in particular.  Sheer joy!

I thought that these guys would be appropiate for the theme although they wouldn't claim to be something special I don't think that I could spin those wheels for 385yards much less an additional 26miles
