Across the Tracks


This building sits across the railroad tracks from Sloss Furnaces. I have no idea what it was used for in the past. It looks abandoned, yet I thought the afternoon sun really showed it off!

If any of my Birmingham readers can share some information, please leave a comment!

Gorgeous light! You're absolutely right! There's a lot of character in that building and I'll bet a lot of stories as well.

You must have one heck of a telephoto lens to get this one from the air on your way to Paris...or from Paris...where are you now???

Love the shots of this building, V. I also like that you included the down pipe in the second one. I remember a time when you would have hesitated.

A beautiful palette, an array of texture. These are quite successful, V. Hope you're having fun in Paris.

Lovely old place, or maybe that's mainly the way you've photographed it. I would, however, have found a way inside.

Thanks and I am in paris and need to head to bed. We arrived at 9 this morning and had a FULL day of walking and eating and sipping. Peter joined us and we were a frozen foursome but had a ball.
Bonsoir!
