Mundane Monday – Tin roof rusted

Thanks to the B-52’s for this great line from ‘Love Shack’ – just perfect to use with my photo of a rusty tin roof! 

Tin roof rusted.

On a recent bushwalk along the Hume & Hovell walking track, we came upon this old hut which was used by workers in years gone by. It was a classic piece of early Australian architecture and very much in the middle of nowhere.

I love the rusted tin roof set against the sparkling blue sky on a warm summer’s day. The rusty panels seem to line up with the soaring gum trees and create a sense of symmetry.

In its day it was very mundane but for us walkers it was a delightful find.


Mundane Monday Challenge is hosted by PhoTrablogger on a Monday.  There are always interesting links to other Mundane Monday posts to have a look at in his weekly post.

….a challenge created to find beauty in everyday mundane things…capture the beauty and upload the photographs.

Hope you enjoy your  Mundane Monday.

Deb 🙂

    A perfect photo for a Monday, tin roof full of character and stories. Have a great day Deb. 🙂 p.s. I used to love that B-52s song.

      Thanks Miriam, hope your Monday is a good one too. It certainly is a roof full of character and I agree that the hut could tell some good stories. I still love that song!

        Yeah, me too Debbie. Once I get off this computer my Monday will be routine and mundane!

      All these great lines are coming out now!! I love singing along to it too. We’ve all been humming along together I think.
      I’m glad the roof and sack resonate with you, it’s a lovely old place with so much history.

    “Rustic” beauty of Old world charm 😉
    I like the scribbling on the wood in the second picture. Or was it your watermark? 😉

      Thanks for commenting. It was a lovely day for a walk in the bush. The rusty tin roof of the hut really appealed to me.
