In reality the challenge could encompass anything old, abandoned or decaying. Talacre would be my first choice here as it meets all three of the criteria.
I caught the lighthouse just before the sun set as it was bathed in some absolutely fantastic golden light. Interestingly there was some work going on inside the lighthouse, “tidying up” is how it was described. But the nice young man I spoke to said they were probably going to paint the lighthouse next year.
That would be a shame because it’s a photographers dream at the moment with all those textures and the broken up pattern, exposing the brickwork.
My other choice would be “the Duke”. I have photographed this poor old ship loads of times and it’s getting worse every time I visit it.
Apparently it’s still in very good condition inside. Shame we will never get to see it.
That’s it. I hope you enjoyed the photographs.
