  3. My favorite is the one with the moss-infused bricks peeping out of the wall. Wonderful.

  4. Great collection of images
    Char! I think it's amazing
    what you find in a place you
    call home when you're in it,
    walking about. Wonderful
    contrasts indeed!

  5. Beautiful photographs Char. I really love the angle you took on some of these, the focus by apperture and by point of view. They all have a lot of feeling to them beyond visual appeal.

  7. Very evocative shots. For me, those are the best type, the photographs evoking wonder, prompting questions, drawing us in.

  8. Beautiful shots and processing. Love your perspective. A great way to capture for history without it being boring. I don't know why but photos look so much better on our blogs than they do on flickr....why is that? Love the head stone and the iron fence!

  10. Gorgeous shots. The color in the fire-escape scene just jumps out. And the bricks and iron fence and stone posts all evoke a melancholy timelessness. You've really got a great eye.
