You are right.
This is a curious old building, with a need for a lock!
WE are all consumed with interesting theories!
Mind you, if you ever watch 'Shed and Buried' there are numerous old machines that are locked away for posterity in old sheds and are worth hundreds, sometimes thousands of pounds!!
Whatever, it is a most interesting building, maybe transformed from an old privy!
It is old, rustic and has 'ear-like' growths on its concave roof, all well captured in your photograph.
My warm regards,

Ciao caro Carlo,
Approvo il vostro ritaglio della grande ruota; rende una caratteristica interessante, ben posizionato e dà interesse per lo spazio negativo, che contiene molto sorprendentemente dettagli del comune.
Molto ben composto!
I miei cordiali saluti,

ummmm....I think you need to add more color! this scene isn't colorful enough, not even close, its too dull, too bland, I want to see more grey's and whites.
this one is making my eyes hurt! WOW!
perhaps my favorite photo you've posted from Columbia.
the cut and composition is A+
macjake (72491) 2017-03-25 6:38
wow, its easy to see why photographers would love this bridge!
I know I do and this is my first time seeing it.
those rounded parts on each side really stand out well and make it so attractive. so does the bridge's depth and dark dark brown colors. love the misty air in the bg too, thats adds another layer of mystery. fine post

I have to be honest, I don't really know what's going on here in this scene!
could it be similar to what people are doing in India with the Ganges River? I guess what's throwing me off is that railing in the water, it just seems to out of place. the smile on the lady is the best part! very interesting scene indeed. great for TE
macjake (72491) 2017-03-25 5:53
glad I could be somewhat of an inspiration haha :)
we've both found a pretty cool library!
even looking at this scene I can see a few neat compositions waiting to be taken.
love the angular lines, the contrasting flow of the style and that back wall is pretty unique too. nice one!
macjake (72491) 2017-03-25 5:47
these shots just keep getting better and better.
I'm sure Denis will approve :)
its cool to have that slither of silver rock sloping down in the bg, that looks fantastic. and yes, the train does add alot, i'd be waiting and waiting for the train to come into the scene :)
funny how the train looks like a toy.
wonderful composition and lighting.

I have to agree, the Beta versions really do look better don't they!
another good write up.
I always try to imagine how these castles and the surrounding areas looked back in the 13th century. Can you believe the horror and disbelief of the original owners today, if they knew their castle is basically part of a parade going down the river! A sight to see along the route.
Oh how times have changed. such a charming scene, very photogenic and it looks great in every aspect. lets bring back the Beta full time!
macjake (72491) 2017-03-25 5:35
I've been waiting for a new photo!
hmmm...different cultures mixing well together...Trump should take note of that!
this is a great looking mural, so much going on it takes a moment or two to adapt the eyes to figure out what we're looking at. and its one of those murals that I see something i didn't see the previous time.
love the choice of blue and white, it truly does stand out well. I'll have to keep my eye out for these next time
macjake (72491) 2017-03-25 5:31
yes, as you've pointed out in your note it does appear the boats are floating.
the red color splashed actually are very important to the overall scene as it provides an excellent colour contrast. and its great how we can see the rocks underneath the water. wishing I was here! cheers
macjake (72491) 2017-03-25 5:29
Oh i think people are going to like this one! Me included.
its all about the lighting, the autumn colours, and the position of the Abbey which is off to the side on the right.
this one is so easy on the eyes, its easy to be drawn into it.
macjake (72491) 2017-03-25 5:24
gotta love these old farmhouses right?
look at what they have to offer, there's alot for sure.
the many layers of wall, which include brick, mortar, stone, and that door and small window one the left are the icing on the cake. have to appreciate that broom too! lovely lighting to bring it all together. cheers
macjake (72491) 2017-03-25 5:18
so who is this mystery man?
I get the sense this man has a high opinion of himself? haha
but you say he's a photographer? well then, he's a good man!
his stance, his gaze, his outfit hat and all make the scene.
and I truly don't mind the tight cropping, it suits the scene well with him coming out of the right side like that.

it's more interesting for my taste to look at people pictures than cathedral or castle ones. This one is special, but it's a way to learn from our world, the lady seems very happy to bath in the pool, holy according to her belief.
CLODO (35730) 2017-03-25 4:03
you note underlines well why you posted this image. First of all, the decrepited walls with their indian words, and then the 2 smiling sellers waiting for customers, without them the picture would have been mundane, here it describes well the street life.
Kave a nice WE
macjake (72491) 2017-03-25 3:39
its great to see this photo was taken only a few days ago, looks like Spring has Sprung in this area of the country!
lovely lighting and exposure, its spot on.
smart idea to leave the skyline out of the scene too.
macjake (72491) 2017-03-25 3:36
uh oh, another snow shovelling day in Montreal Eastern Canada.
Out here in Vancouver people are starting to Golf :)
another interesting part for me is the face we see french language on the stop signs :)
all I can say is I'm glad I now live out in Vancouver haha, maybe I shouldn't have said that oops. cheers
macjake (72491) 2017-03-25 3:27
I like that you're showing us something different, I certainly didn't go here so its totally new for me.
Well, I did go to Loch-Ness, but not to this exact area here that you went to. we see the classic gloomy weather and sky in Scotland haha
but we also see charming homes and buildings and autumn colors on the leaves, so thats good :) cheers
