Old Shed

While out for a walk yesterday I took a short cut down a lane I do not normally use.  Like all good short cuts it delayed me!

There were are number of rather tumble down sheds and garages in the lane - this is the unlocked bolt on one of them.

I decided to go with black and white because there was not many other colours than shades of grey.

You can find more close up shots at Macro Monday 2 and I Heart Macro.

Dear Stewart,
I like your decision. This is a good B&W motive. I like the structure of the old wooden door very much!
Have a great week!
