And now for something a little different…

Remember my trip to Cambridge Botanic Garden?  While there I came across this little brick hut.  I’m not sure what it’s for, probably something mundane like hiding unsightly power supplies or something, but it looked so pretty I just had to photograph it.  However, something was bothering me.  It just wasn’t quite right and it took me a while to work out what it was.


This fairy tale hut in the woods with it’s ivy, weather worn woodwork and peeling paint belonged in an old black and white movie.  Perhaps a silver screen version of a tale from the Brothers Grim, complete with over the top acting and the dialogue popping up for everyone to read.  The heroine blissfully wandering through the peaceful woods with a flowing cloak and basket, unaware of the impending danger. 

Of course now I’m trying to work out if the hut is her refuge or part of her doom……
