A walk around a small town not far from where I live revealed just how many photographic opportunities abound when one is willing to open one’s eyes and mind.
Many years ago I was told: “There are 10 thousand pictures within 10 minutes of home.” Those words have stayed with me ever since and are foremost in my mind whenever I pick up my camera and venture out.
So, in this instance, it was a case of “I spy with my little eye something beginning with O. Old!”
An old wooden shed down a side street, with its weathered timber and slight lean, was a certain candidate for a photograph.

The Common School is now a private residence. Built in 1868, this bluestone building has had many uses – first as a school, then between 1923 and 2004, it was the Presbyterian Sunday School. It has been used as a hall by many other organisations also.
The above photographs were all taken using a Nikon EM SLR film camera loaded with Kodak Tri-X 400 black and white film.
