Lovely close-ups of a not-so-fantastic subject. The texture is amazing. Did you do some of those dry vines on the wall? Looks just as interesting.

Petrified prehistoric worms in Manhattan?

not so fantastic? I much prefer 80 year old handmade railings turned to ruins than a flower patch. Ruins have character, they ooze history, they tell us where we've been, and where we're going. And simply put, they're beautiful.

so poetic KM! I agree, the color, the shadows, the textures, very fantastic.
Your eye is what captured this.

Kate said...

I find rust can be such a great photographic subject due to all the differing colours and textures.

The railings are so provocative too.

Jarart said...

How many hands have touched that graceful rail over the years...we will never know.

marley said...

Great close up details and I love the shadows on the steps. Nice work all round!

Virginia said...

Now the vines covering this building remind me so much of Paris!! I've photographed the likes of this so many times. Love that old railing as well. Aren't they fun to try and capture at just the right angle? You've caught some nice shadows too KM. WEll done.

Oh, like everything doesn't remind Virg of Paris these days.

I love patina, and hate to see it when sanded and painted over. What I don't love at all are bars on windows.

Please don't show this to my Mother! She'll make me strip it and re-paint it ...

You know what it is when you first look at it, but it has a snake-like quality.

I agree with you Ken. The beauty and magic of gorgeous old things can be astounding.
