Dike Shed

Being from the same location as the mushroom shots, this dike shed is a nice segway from recent shots to the archives. Another fun fact: it’s a square. I usually stick to 3:2, but this one screamed “square!” at me from the moment I spotted this composition.

Dike sheds were used to store tools and sandbags to make repairs to a dike in case of emergency. With modern (fast) transportation, they lost their purpose in the 20 century. Most of them are gone now, but some got repurposed and survived.
