Ruins
« on: November 08, 2011, 11:29:30 am »
I did a quick search and there doesn't seem to be a picture thread for ruins - those old, fallen apart houses that you see when riding on some far away dirt road. I'm always intrigued by them and their history.

Here are a few pics of a such a ruin in the Anysberg. Lets see some of yours as well - and tell us where you took the pic/s.  :thumleft:

NOTE: Seeing as I started this thread, can I ask that the pics you post here are attached to your post and not hosted elsewhere. Most of those pic host sites are blocked here and I can't see the pics! thanx!

Taken while riding in Bainsvlei, flood damage during the 1988 flood caused it to be abandoned. This was after we had more floods in the vicinity last year... there was a huge pan of water on the property.

02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away
