Decrepitude: Tyneham revisited

I posted about the abandoned village of Tyneham back in May. A couple of days ago, I went again because I had never looked at the farm buildings. It was a dismal day, misty and damp at the top of the ranges, and drizzling steadily when I reached Tyneham. But no problem, I was taking images indoors, or at any rate, under shelter. And the day seemed appropriate to the air of decrepitude that I was trying to capture.

So, for those who like their dose of cobwebs and corrosion, here goes….with a little help from Photogene and Snapseed on my iPad.

    These are terrific Sue. That certainly is a decrepit building. Looks like you could start your own challenge around the word ‘decrepitude’ 🙂

    • Thanks, Suzanne. I think I managed to inject some atmosphere into these images. Hmm, I like the idea of the decrepitude challenge, but doubt I have the stamina for it! 🙂

  2. Absolutely love the composition in your photos that you have given real life using color, lighting, and the selection of your subject matter.

    • Thank you very much, Charlie, for your super comment. Glad you enjoyed these images, and I am very encouraged. I decided against flash, because it tends to flatten the image and had to use quite a high ISO rating because it was a dull day (I didn’t have a tall enough tripod with me). The post-processing had to do the work!

  3. Exactly my taste, I love it, regards Mitza

  4. What beautiful photographs!

    You may be interested in a piece on my site:

    ‘Over the years, the plight of Tyneham has continued to touch me; and the more I investigated its history, the more I felt compelled to write about it. And so, using the writing genre I know best – the ghost story – I tried to convey the sense of duty that comforted and supported these people in their valiant efforts to help Britain win the war. The resulting story, Return to Tyneham, can be read here:

    It’s due to be published in my forthcoming book, ‘Ghosts and other supernatural guests’
