Patti has asked us to think about our personal inspiration. As she said in her post “inspiration “finds” me when my mind is untroubled and I am “in the moment.” …. I would agree, and in the past a major source of inspiration would be when I was at an abandoned or ruined place. Here’s a gallery
More recently, I haven’t been getting to abandoned places as I used to, but am getting much more attuned to the light conditions, and getting inspiration when good light appears….
First, on some local walks and trips to gardens
…and also catching the light when I was locked down at home:

Wonderful images, Sue. The abandoned places you’ve visited must be unforgettable.
Thanks, Sylvia! All the abandoned places are memorable for differing reasons….
A great post, Sue. I can see that the light and shadow got you in the early days too.
And you should be well armed for the next CoLCPS competition 🙂
Thanks! Only one image allowed for the competition unless I was to enter a print as well, which ain’t going to happen!
Yes, lots of your favourites here. All good stuff!
A great gallery of inspiration 😃
Thank you, David!
Beautiful gallery, Sue! I really enjoyed your shots of the abandoned mines. The “ghosts” of the buildings and their occupants talk to us, don’t they? And the light in your office is wonderful, too! Thanks so much for sharing them.
Thank you, Patti!
Great series, great photos. You used one of my favorite words, ‘detritus’, which is what mankind leaves behind, eventually to be taken back by Nature. I visited some small, abandoned slate quarries during a Scotland tour. Quite the roofing material at one time.
Quite the roofing material, indeed
oh wow Sue you are really showing off your artistic and technical flair here. What an inspiring post
Thank you, Becky! See you later?
