It seems that old crumbling bricks contain so many interesting tales. I wish I knew how to get them to speak to me!The texture and angle of this shot is excellent Lucy.
Hi Suzi.This wall is part of the ruins of what I think was a World War Two gun emplacement.I could have made the bricks look warmer but the colours here are accurate and it isn't the kind of picture one wants to make pretty - when it isn't. The bricks really are this rather horrid redish colour and the mud is grey - the kind you can sink in and very dark when wet.I showed a bigger area from the same site a couple of weeks ago, I don't know whether you saw it?http://picturesjustpictures.blogspot.com/2009/05/now-war-is-over.htmland said a little about it in the comments there. I am very affected by these scars in our landscape and take them as a reminder of how important peace is.Lucy
great and interesting shot - love the texture!
oh how I enjoy images of bricks..something about the texture...the lines!
I agree with Elk and thank goodness they never had to be used.
Angelika, Elk and Hermes - I'm glad you like the photo of the fallen wall. I wasn't sure what people would make of it because it is very dark (in several senses) compared with pictures of other walls I've posted here - which have had a much warmer atmosphere.Lucy
