The Things They Left Behind 3 - Heatherlie Quarry

This post continues from yesterdays - this old quarry site was abandoned  and reopened on a number of occasions, but today its story is told mainly by the equipment that was left behind.




You can find more shots from around the world at Our World Tuesday. SM

  7. Immediately brought back memories when I was a little kid...staying in my great grandmother's cabin in a silver mining ghost town in Northern New Mexico ...climbed through the fence to get near the closed mine...loved to dig through the junk pile. Came home with more scrap iron than you'd ever believe. Wish I'd had a camera back in those days.

  8. This reminds me of a lot of what we saw in Alaska ... many artifacts left behind along the Klondike Trail and other mining sites. And abandoned in people's yards too for that matter.

    You made art out of the leftovers though!!!

  14. I love old rusted equipment ... they have such a story to tell if only we could read them. These are great pictures, Stewart and quite a contrast to yesterday's orchid. That orchid, I must say, would give the real Mantis (praying that is) a start. Very unique. Is this a place close to your home and what else does it have to offer ... seems like a interesting spot to visit. Be well,

  18. I love seeing old bits and pieces, it makes you wonder at why they were left. On the other hand, what litterers humans are :)
