In the Countryside

“Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.”

Just driving through the countryside and saw this rustic ambiance ….I had to ask my husband to stop the car so that I can take a photo of this beauty. Taken a few weeks ago in Castlemaine in Victoria during our family’s short getaway.

It looks deserted but who knows…there might be somebody there looking back at me saying “who the heck is that taking a photo of my house.”

This is for Dan’s Thursday Doors Challenge.

    Lovely Teresa, that’s exactly what I do, sometimes I get lucky and he stops other times he says too late

    1. Teresa says:

      Yes, that’s what happens in Melbourne, but here we were in dirt roads so he doesn’t have any excuse haha

  2. Lovely photos!

    1. Teresa says:

      Thanks a lot!

    I’m glad he stopped, these are great doors! That’s a big step out of that barn, though. Maybe it’s easier to load or unload a truck. I always want to get a picture of places like these. Even when i was a kid, I would point them out as we drove places.

    1. Teresa says:

      Yea, when I saw it I had to stop. Glad we are liking the same things. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

    so true, Teresa. I took me a while to see the beauty on the countryside (of course, except for the forest in which I lived).Thank you for widen our horizon! Jesh

    1. Teresa says:

      Thanks ❤️

  6. I think that first one goes beyond rustic to decrepit! 🙂 Good finds, Teresa.


    1. Teresa says:

      Oh yes, it borders on that 😀

  9. I really love the shades of colour in the grass: green through yellow to red. Beautiful.
