Dilapidated train doors

Following a comment from Jude (cornwallincolours), I decided to post these doors, heavily cropped from a couple of dilapidated old railway carriages.

Lots of lovely crusty rust and peeling paint! Textures galore! Alas, these are not as sharp as I would like, but I shall return to this place, hopefully before these carriages are restored……

  1. The middle shot is fine, Sue. Works very well.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I like to believe that of all the dreams that have been on this train, al left one of them of them have become real.

  3. Lovely! Who cares about a bit of blur…

  4. The character and history of these doors shines through despite some blur on the first one. I hope you do get back there.

  5. Great shots, Sue! Nostalgia for a long forgotten time is the feeling when I look at your photos.

  6. Blur is merely dilapidation in another form. Perfectly suited to ruins, and the past.

      Sorry, Meg, I disagree….intentional blur is fine (to imply motion, ICM) but sloppy camera work on my part is most definitely NOT!!

  7. Love peeling paint, rust, and just about any signs of age. Excellent shots.

  8. Love the crusty rust. You’ll have to be quick to go back as I’m sure train buffs will be itching to get their hands on them

  9. Just beautiful, Sue

  10. Oh – so You, Sue! And they are beautiful – hope you can go see them again before they are gone!

  11. Marvelous doors, Sue. A feast for the imagination. Hugs.
