The Scottish Coal Mine

Paula’s Traces of the Past Thursdays Special photo challenge

A couple of years ago we visited a disused coal mine in Scotland which is now the Scottish Mining Museum. The weather wasn’t all that great for taking photos but here is a few shots of the buildings and works.

Saturation

Paula at Lost in Translation Thursdays Special word prompt: Saturation

The use of saturation in some photos enhances or changes the original.

Some Silky Oak flowers

A bit of saturation enhancement

It looks like the path has already been saturated

But then again, look what photo edit saturation can do

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.
180331_blog challenge_recycled_playhouse roof_

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
