Drove to an abandoned inn and took a walk to clear my head and breathe in the winterfresh air and slip and slide on the frozen pathways. Snagged quite a few shots but these 2 turned out the best.
Used my fz20 in sepia mode. Not much done to enhance the quality so it is pretty much as is. Minor cropping and colour balance done in microsoft photo editor.
I call them.......Grit face and Arms of Grit.
Hope you enjoy it.

Must have been an interesting inn once. And I agree with Beth Ellen about context. It is not around here I am sure.

Heres the missing context.
Taken in Toronto, Canada. Used to be an old inn called THE GUILD INN. Located on a cliff that overlooks Lake Ontario, very close to the Scarborough Bluffs. An absolute scenic location. Anyway the owner, apparently a hard ass jerk, had problems with the provincial employees working there and refused to cooperate with the city so they shut it down and boarded up the inn, the house and the lodging. However the pathways are still maintained so people can take walks , and others like me can go shutter happy. In summers there is an open area where they host plays and musical events. Most of the structures have collapsed are in total disarray. Hopefully someday it will be restored so that people may enjoy its beauty. The pix are part of a sadstone like structure , i tried to capture the mood of the statue as best i could.
Hope this little snippet helps.
Peace.
Pete

Nice picture,This is a very personal note,I feel "Sepia tone" of the FZ series is much deeper for my liking( but that is the personal taste ,you may not agree with me)

I like the sepia tone of the shots, it seems to me to fit perfectly and in perticular the first shot, wel done. Sounds like it would be the perfect place to take walks and pictures.
To post more then one picture you have to have some type of online album and from there you can generate links to your photos. There are several sites that offer free services, photobucket is one I use but there are others. Here is a link to PB
