Declining Structures…

Paula has asked us to show monochrome structures, and Debs has asked us to show decline, so here are both challenges captured in a few images, and none of thse structures have survived beyond fragments:

Frongoch lead mine, way into its decline

 

Some remaining structures at Ilfracombe station in 1972

Brighton West pier, structure in decline 1986

  1. A theme you always tackle well, Sue. Decline and decay.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Love the first, Sue. I like a little romanticism with my decay. 🙂 🙂 Happy Sunday!

  3. Formidable takes , so pertinent to the themes!

  4. You killed both birds with one stone. I like that 🙂 Nobody can depict decline as beautifully and wistfully as you do. I love your structures, Sue!

  6. Fantastic for the challenges, and fantastic in their own rights, Sue. The first two have real mood and atmosphere. The last one is rather sad for me. I love seeing the ruins these days, but I don’t think I ever saw it in its more substantial form. Your shot shows how much was lost

  7. Brighton pier is delightful.

    Great photos – very moody and atmospheric. I particularly like the pier as I remember it so well.

  9. Love these, especially the pier. Too bad they no longer exist.

  10. Ilfracombe, good heavens!

  11. Superb examples Sue! I like the strong lines of the pier.

      Thank you, Madhu! That pier is virtually gone now, just a small portion of metal framework remains, and that will be swept away before too long

Over to you...
