Abandoned lantern

Those of you who look at these photo posts regularly, probably won’t be surprised to see today’s picture – the rich textures in the wood, the patches of rust on the lantern, and the decaying leaves gathering around it are probably fairly typical of the things which catch my eye!

But for me there’s a bit of something else here too, the questions about how the lantern got here, who left it, when, why and so on.  The notion of an image “telling a story” is something I was discussing with one of my photography students a couple of days ago, and so when I was choosing a picture for today’s post, this seemed an obvious choice.
