A few more of the derelict or just neglected:

This Twillingate lighthouse is a tourist attraction, and still in use, unfortunately the maintenance budget did not include paint:


New Perlican church hall, no longer in use:


Just one more stiff wind should do it:


I will post more if there is any interest.

Sad subjects in a way, but so suitable for the B&W approach which you did so well. My favorite is the lighthouse.

Interesting subject. Took some time, but I did notice how you left the Canadian flag in colour.

Iguess these buildings offer quite a lot of close up opportunities. Thats a field where you have demonstrated your skills earlier, with your eye for "simple" details and "simple" composition.

I have a happy photo op memory of a ship graveyard in Portugal, with ships in variuos stages of decay. I still have a BW on the wall, but some of the most interesting shots were of wind-and sunbattered wood, taken with an ISO 15 BW film.

Here are some images of an old abandoned paper mill in Glovertown. These were shot with a Fuji S7000 which is why I cannot post them in my usual Pentax DSLR forum.





And here is one colour shot:

Those are some very nice shots Ira, old barns and abandoned houses are strangly beautiful to me too. You did very well with these.
