I like this one!
It is abandoned but, with the light and the blue sky, it is like if the roof was saying !hey I am old but I still alive!
FANTASTIC Marilyn! Perfect shot! Greetings EVa
Excellent shot, nicely seen
This much pin...Fantastic and especial photo Marilyn ! Kindest regards, Tamás
Many thanks, blai, Sylvie, Eva, picsonthemove, and Tamás. I was taking pictures of the windows (not posted), when I looked up at the chimney and noticed all the nails. I was very surprised!!
Wow, it's a perfect measure of the thickness of the missing shingles! There must have been some very strong wind storms, or else this building must be very old. I can't imagine how long it would take for wooden shingles to decompose completely around the nails without some force to help pull them loose. I would expect if the shingles were in bad shape they would have been repaired at the same time the top of the chimney was reconstructed, and those bricks have not faded much.
I also wonder about the history of this, Ryan. I moved in close to see if I could get a shot of the chimney and the sagging roof, and I was amazed when I saw all those nails. It does look as though storms must have played their part.
...unbelievable...survivor of a tornado...and you found it
Oh, yes. I've seen another interesting shot - during blowing up this photo - the part with the grey slates and nails only... really splendid texture :)
Thanks, Roland and Janina, for your interesting comments! Cheers, Marilyn
