As I’m not feeling 100% today, a quick post to kill two birds with one stone, so to speak. The ruins of a tin mine illustrating Cornwall’s mining heritage, quite solid Traces of the Past. I posted a monochrome version of this image the other day – I wonder which one you prefer?
See more examples of Heritage over here, and Traces of the Past here.
A nice shock. Suitably antique in content and fading colours.
A nice shock, Draco?
“Shot”. Damn that spell checker. 🙂
Thought that was what you meant! That predictive spell thingy drives me nuts at times…
It’s particularly bad for me. It doesn’t like many of the NZ place names and LOTR names I’ve been using in my recent posts.
I can understand it on LotR as they are fictional, but NZ? What a cheek…
Hope you’re not suffering too much. I know it’s not always easy.
Colour or monochrome? Sepia or saturated tones? Depends on the story you want to tell, I suppose, more than the viewer. But giving us a choice means we have to work harder, doesn’t it! And my own fall-back position is just that — fall back!
I like it!
I think the one in B&W is more mysterious, but both are really nice 😉
Yes, I like the monochrome myself, it speaks of the mysterious past to me….
Last time I appreciated the B&W version for the word ” heritage” , but now I’m in doubt : this one looks so delicate and nostalgic , too…
Thanks, Anna – nostalgic is good!
It reminds me of the mines on the series Poldark.
Well, I’ve not seen it, but I was told some were used….
I love the series.
Hmmm, I don’t which I prefer, but I do like this colored one. Hope you feel better soon!
The monochrome had a little more atmosphere for me.
I hope you feel better soon, Sue.
Best wishes, Pete.
Yep, I think monochrome for suitable atmosphere for these old things….. Thanks for your well wishes
I would love to visit this place. The monochrome in this case works better. more depth.
Depth and mystery, eh?!
Hope you’re feeling a bit better soon Sue! I like elements in both the mono and colour. Love the feeling of nostalgia and industry that mono gives but I also love the deep blue of the sea! Really want to visit some of the old mining sites sometime.
Thanks, Sarah! You should go and see a Cornish mine engine house or two!
I need to time it with a spring tide that will retreat enough down the beach at Wheal Coates that I can photograph the scene from the sand 🙂 One of these days I will manage to plan it out properly!
I’ll need it!!
That’s beautiful. Really beautiful.
You’re doing rather well for a poorly person. 🙂 🙂
Just one post, and the photo had already been processed…. Simples!
Merci, Madam 🙂 🙂

Iconic view! I love the bluish tones. They suit Cornwall, but let me see the monochrome one and I’ll get back to you.
Sorry to hear you’re not feeling well. Sending hugs. Xo
Thank you, Sue! Hugs much appreciated
I have to say, in this case I prefer the monochrome.
We’re on the same page, then!

Loved seeing the Cornwall mining relics when travelling there and your photo has brought back many lovely memories. Hope you feel better soon.
Have you seen the monochrome ones I posted here, Irene: https://suejudd.com/2017/05/16/pleasure-of-ruins-3-cornwalls-tin-mines/ ?
Glad I brought back memories for you!
Black and white for me – not easy to pick, mind you.
Have a restful day Sue
Hehe…well, I do prefer monochrome for these, myself! Have a good Friday!
Feel better soon, Sue.
Thank you, Lynne!
The faded colors make it particularly nostalgic.
Thanks, glad it works!
The monochrome wins for me!
Yay! My sentiments! Thanks, Gilly
