day 291 – four door panelsPosted: September 12, 2011
I like to explore the countryside carrying my little camera to record the things that catch my attention. These four door panels were lain out like this in the middle of a field next to railway tracks. They had obviously been there for quite some time and were part of large collection of items abandoned at this site.
What inspires me in a site like this is seeing objects that are slowly decaying into the surrounding landscape. These wood panels will take years to disappear. Insects will move in and begin the process of breaking down the wood fibres in the plywood, moss will creep accross the surface, rot will set in wherever the wood is wet. Grasses and small trees will begin to sprout around and through and slowly all parts will be covered by surrounding vegetation.
