This is one from a roll of film I shot at an abandoned railway station at the very small township of Captains Flat, not far from Canberra. The township formerly supported a small mining community, and the mine was abandoned many years ago now. The township now survives solely because it is within commuting distance, and attracts people who prefer to live away from the larger towns in the area.

The railway closed when the mine closed, and the small station is now in a very sad state. The photo shows some of the abandoned items left the building the bike is leaning against is in fact burned out. Someone had lived in the buildings at some stage in the last few years.

I took this with 35mm and Ilford Delta 100 film. The film was developed in ID-11, and the neg was printed at grade 1 with Ilford RC multigrade glossy paper and developed in Ilford multigrade developer.

A very interesting study of what's left when the railway closes. It's a common scene here too. I enjoyed studying the details.
