I've posted a couple of shot's of this old school, but you couldn't see this aspect of the old school. One can only guess at the reasons for the leaning of the old school, or why nobody has seen fit to replumb the structure. At first I thought the anchor had been some attempt to stabilize the place, but as I later learned it had been installed to keep it from being washed away in a hurricane. See my previous posts for more info on this curious place.

There's a rustic and woody ambience to this wooden school. With a hint of warmth and comforting feel. I guess that kind of feeling is something we get sitting beside our grandparent.
Say Ned, you might like to clone off the red thingy on the right and the cut off guy on the left.It is somewhat distracting don't you think. As for the rainforest tent I posted, it wasn't mine. I was the "embedded" photographer for the militia endurance training exercise and after lugging all the gears for hours, I don't think I have much left for that kind of handiwork.

Quite interesting piece of history. And IMO your best version of this subject. Good angle and nice sidelight. I would crop from the right. But probably not from the left, to leave some space for the flags.
