Melbourne Daily Photo

Hello, I created this blog because Melbourne is my city and I want people to see what a beautiful place it is. So come with me on a journey of discovery as we traverse the dining precincts, the culture, the laneways and hidden gems that make Melbourne marvellous.

Theme Day ~ Rust and Ruin

The Lonely Chimney


Above: The ruins of a home

This is all that remained of a home burnt in a devastating bushfire - everything was gone except for the chimney which was still standing, a rusty pipe and some twisted metal.

Oh no! I hope they had good insurance. Very sad to see someone lose their home, but it does fit the theme.

Quite a ruin, but the shot works quite well.

Such a lovely blue sky and the remnants of life beneath...what a contrast...

Just goes to show that the pig with the brick house made the right choice! Bushfires are terrible though.
