Another from #fp4party shoot day 7. Further along the track in the previous post, which is, in fact, a disused railway line opened in 1861 and closed in 1929. This is a ruined ‘office’ type building beside the track bed.

And one final #fp4party entry for luck. John O’Gaunt’s Range in #KenilworthCastle. Pentax MX, Vivitar 35-70, XTOL. I think if there’s another FP4Party I’ll have run out of subjects!
