no one’s home

i found this caravan inside the ruins of an old farmhouse about half a mile out of grassguards farm in the duddon valley. it was a pretty isolated spot with no sign of any running water or electricity. there was no one home and all around it was pretty overgrown but the chimney and curtains made me think that someone must’ve lived there at some point. i like the way the paint is peeling especially around the windows revealing the original pink trim.

About ptrivers

I'm Patrick here are some of my pictures. I love taking pictures of things, mainly of things rather than people, i think this is because i hate having my picture taken and don't want to put other people in the same position. Also i hate asking folk to pose for shots i think it can really play up to peoples vanity. Still thats not to say that i wont someday take pictures of people, i just don't fancy it right now. I lived in London for about six years, there's just so much happening at a really hectic pace, almost out of control, teetering on the edge of chaos and oblivion, i miss it everyday the people and the places. I now live in the lake district which is impossibly beautiful and an incredibly inspiring place to be. The pace of life is still and sleepy a far reach from my previous life, but interjected with moments of exhilaration and adrenaline, its an interesting combination. If you like my photos or want to ask me any questions or perhaps would even like to buy some prints then please get in contact.

    This is a beautiful shot, amazing balance and symmetry, I love the way the caravan is framed by the old buildings, a dwelling within the ruin of a dwelling – both uninhabited…what’s the story behind it all…? Keep up the good shots PT.
