Thursdays Special – Recycled

The word prompt from Lost in Translation: Recycled

Many years ago, when my daughters were small, I built a playhouse for them. The playhouse is totally made from recycled building materials. Now-a-days it has my tools and other building bits and pieces, nails, screws bolts, paint, plumbing and electrical parts etc.

The door came from a Shell Service Station where I worked. When they modernised the old building, I grabbed the door to the office that has two way glass

The roof comes from the first house I built that we lived in for a few years. Here is a bit about that house.

The walls are from the Jackadgery Hall. I helped build a new extension on the Hall and these timbers are from the wall that was removed. The timber is from around 1930 or thereabouts.

The windows are from the old house also. They were bought from a bloke who saw me looking at windows in an auction place in town. He said he had some windows he had to get rid of (he carted them from Brisbane to Grafton when he moved house. His wife said he had to get rid of them lol)

The stumps the building is sitting on are from trees from my place. The wooden front step was from a mates place. He didn’t want the off cuts from his place.
That is the story of the recycled building, which has been also re-purposed.

Do you know how to get to……

I am doing a double for this post. The photo challenge for Paula’s Thursday Special: Way  (this is the second one for Lost in Translation) and Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge. It seems that Cee and I have the same idea, it’s just the application that is different. Compare Cees Which Way to mine.

I am sure there were cities of the world on there many years ago

The Begonia

A photo challenge from Lost in Translation: Once Over

I like this photo challenge as I quite often am not satisfied with a photo I have taken and want to try and capture the feeling or mood when I was attempting to get what I wanted.

Here is the original – the closest of many photos to what I hoped to achieve.

What I wanted but just couldn’t adjust my camera to the right settings to achieve was a dark background in order to fringe highlight the small hairs on the begonia leaves and stems. Once I had manipulated the image to what I desired, I then removed some of the elements that I didn’t want in the photo with cropping and cloning.
This is my final result.
