Someone has taken the trouble to write "unsafe" on this old shed, but not to demolish it.Every now and again I take a photograph as it sinks slowly to its knees. It is a slow process that has been going on for years. The shed is close to the shore at the river Annan estuary and was once used by fishermen.

what a well seen shot,viewed from a low angle with a wide angle lens the rusting shed has loads of interest, from the graffiti to the collapsing doors.
Nicely sharp and really well composed.
Best regards Les.

nice your good reportage shot about the old shed as is found in the shore of the river Annan.I like the light and the colour management as the clarity of the image.

Cette vieille "shed" a sûrement eu des plus beaux jours. Elle est sur son dernier souffle mais elle fait encore le bonheur des photographes et le dessin sur le côté la rend encore plus intéressante. Bien captée dans un bel éclairage et un excellent rendu des couleurs.
Toutes mes félicitations,

A masterfully understated title - both for the shed and the photo. This end of the building is almost a kind of face, getting longer and more wrecked looking as the years pass. Good viewpoint and exposure, which could so easily have blown the highlights.

Hello Bev ,
May be this old shed will be destroyed by a big storm . Until today , it falls down slowly . A nostalgic capture , under a fine light .

Hello Bev - This rickety old shed has tremendous photographic appeal. I love the way it splays out towards the bottom almost as if it is sinking to its knees. Excellent shot with wonderful details and attractive light. Warm regards rosemary

This shed is curtsying!
It is taking its final bow but because of its age, it's taking a long time to fulfil! I just love its resilience!
Excellent details under a fine light. I like how your povdraws the viewer naturally from the front to the wall collapsing back.
Have a lovely day,

this place does not look real! This is a very interesting impression of this ramshackle shed in a wonderful light. The perspective is stunning. My compliments!

Good observation and awareness, realistic and meaningful everyday subject. like both in the amusing sense and the compositional one with the placement, The elements work together and also speak to us directly in muted colour palette and a splash of brighter colour. Great detail that excels in my eyes. It looks to me as if the shead is going to collapse anytime and has grown organically as the various additions that have appeared down the years, but I like the fadded graffiti best. Photographically it standout strikingly against the surrounding. Great, something completely different and well done even more so considering the lengths you had to go to, to achieve the results you wanted to show us, Congrats, TFS Have agreat WE

Nothing here that a simple resoration job couldn't fix in a matter of minutes!
Actually, this old shed has provided some fine photographic material - there's nothing quite like rust and decay for making fine photographic subjects and I should imagine there's plenty of old rotten and wrecked boats in your neck of the woods to provide lots of camera fodder.
The lighting here is wonderful and you have made best use of it. Fabulous vibrant colours, a gorgeous sky and stunning detail and sharpness.

Creating that graffiti must have been a clearly unsafe job. It's shocking what dangers kids expose themselves to :-)
This is an amusing and rather fascinating photo and it would be interesting to follow the further degradation of this building. I wonder which will last the longest, this shed or TE?

HI Bev !!
I am glad that you got so many good reviews about this photo..... it is a classic.
No I do not think that is going to collapse soon..... to me ..... it will stand for another 100 years.
Only the graffiti is out of place.
Well spotted and very well presented. A credit to you.
Have a nice week end.
