It doesn't have to be a pantheon, the colloseum, pompei, or the pyramids...

Let see pictures about old buildings...before they blow it down!

my office rooftop

I just shot this picture today, as a 'test-drive' for my GF1...
This buiding was used to be an Airforce HQ during the 60's...
Lower floors had been renovated...the old part is only on the outer part of the top floor...

There is a great 3D quality and geometry to that photo, and I like this idea for a thread quite a bit.

I don't have a relevant image to share yet, but I hope to make one this weekend.
In the meanwhile, :bump:

Dear Amin, Thanx for your comment...

I would like to post another pic then....
I tried to do an experiment on a broken window to create a creative frame..
However, i think i should have use higher apperture to make the front window looked sharp (that would make it be a better shot, don't you think?)

I like this one as well :2thumbs:. I think it's better with the framing window out of focus, because that makes it feel like I'm there looking through it.

What a great location, I like your 2nd shot - the window frame works fine.

Well Done, and thanks for sharing

This should turn out to be a really interesting theme... I'll keep an eye out for something to add in due course.

Cheers

Brian

Agreed, excellent choice of a theme. Looking forward to more photos. I've always enjoyed shooting parts of old buildings because they have a way of sharing their stories.

I really like your first one especially - great reflection in those windows, the b & w lends itself to the eeriness of the scene along with that great depth of field. Very nice.

I like these. On your second shot, nTo, I prefer the out of focus near window frame. I suspect a sharp focus on it would be distracting.

Here is my contribution to the Ruins and Rubbles category. This was shot today with a G1 and a Zeiss 50mm f1.5 Sonnar (shot at f5.6, though).

Chalkdust, this shot of yours is so familiar to me - which from my point of view makes it all the more meaningful. I'm assuming this was taken in the USA? Really, it could have been taken in so many different places here. It makes me sad to see lost farms, and yet I love the haunting beauty of abandoned farm land. There's something very special about this cold weather, winter view of what will become green and very likely overgrown in a few more months. I've lived near places like this and miss having them close by. Thank you for posting.

Restormel Castle - Circular Shell Keep - Lostwithiel, Cornwall, UK - UK2016-102 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

Restormel Castle or Kastel Rostorrmel lies by the River Fowey near Lostwithiel in Cornwall, England, UK. It is one of the four chief Norman castles of Cornwall. The castle is notable for its perfectly circular design. Although once a luxurious residence of the Earl of Cornwall, the castle was all but ruined by the 16th century. It was briefly reoccupied and fought over during the English Civil War but was subsequently abandoned.

Located on a spur of high ground overlooking the River Fowey, Restormel Castle is an unusually well-preserved example of a circular shell keep, a rare type of fortification built during a short period in the 12th and early 13th centuries. Only 71 examples are known in England and Wales, of which Restormel Castle is the most intact of all.

More interesting details can be found at <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Restormel_Castle" rel="noreferrer nofollow">en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Restormel_Castle</a>.

We actually spent a bit of time exploring the Castle which turned out to be more interesting than the first impressions suggested.
