Thursday Doors: Tranquility Base again

We have just rented this little house, no more than 50 yards from our own front door here in Tranquility Base, for my mother. It’s very bijou.

This gave us access to some previously unseen doors of a barn which belongs to another of our neighbours:

Thursday Doors: Tranquility Base

Over the past year or so I’ve posted a number of pictures of doors that are to be found in Tranquility Base, my working title for the little hamlet we live in. Thus you’ve seen Emily’s Henhouse and Bernard’s Barn, amongst others.

Now, I certainly don’t want to give the impression that everything in Tranquility Base is falling down, but here are a few more very local doors, beginning with front and side view of what may once have been a shed that belongs to¬† our nearest neighbour:

Fortunately, this barn is in rather better condition:

Although it’s a bit dodgier round the back:

This one doesn’t see much traffic either:

Nor do these doors, which many years ago would have served to keep the pigs shut in:

52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 12 – Street

Week 12 of the 52 Weeks Photo Challenge hosted by The Girl That Dreams Awake has the topic of ‘Street’.

The genre of ‘street photography’ isn’t really my thing. However, this is probably my favourite street view: the road that runs through our hamlet of ‘Tranquility Base’. In the rush hour.

(Confession time: I’ve used this image before, in a post on my other site. Although, to judge from the stats, you won’t have seen it.)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Local

It really can’t get much more local for me than this, because I took this photograph through my own front window.

That’s my neighbour Albert, keeping a watchful eye on one of his last few ewes as she takes her lamb from the barn over to the pasture, which is on the other side of the road that you can see at the top of the picture.

Sad to say, Albert died earlier this year. You can just see his faithful dog, Arielle, behind him. That’s about as far apart as they ever were: Arielle pined away and died about two weeks after Albert.

Photography 101: Bliss

When we bought Brokedown Palace almost ten years ago, we were also fortunate enough to acquire a few acres of attached agricultural land. This picture is of the field directly behind the house.

Just to be able to look out on a sunny day at this tranquil, unspoiled scene, with no sound but the birds, certainly counts as `bliss’ as far as I’m concerned.
