Lonely, I Stand: the reliability of chimneys

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Chimneys have always had the most reliable longevity of above-ground structures in houses, and I have always been intrigued by the presence of a chimney that has held its ground long after the rest of the house has crumbled to the ground.

I was pleased to have been able to enhance the sun in this photo, which shows how this place really felt on the day – a bit lonely and eerie.

  1. Nice shot and post. It looks like a tombstone of the house and the warmth of the lives that lived there. This reminds me, too, of the chimneys from Birkenau that remained after the camps were destroyed.
