old roof

I like this old roof construction - it's the Market Hall in Chipping Campden, built in 1627:



More monochromes at Aileni's Monochrome Monday.

Lovely b&wh patterns and contrasts.

agree with Dagrun, lovely place for a b&w picture.

Perfect subject in excellent lighting.

I like seeing the beams in roofs - I'm sure the swallows, owls and bats like them too.

Actually, that whole village looks like a pretty amazing place to visit..

Looks like a renovation with some greatold beam-work, also like the tiling that you can see. An old English roof.

Such old structures are a God-send for photographers - NICE!

Re your comment: I thought lead-based paint had been prohibited very many years ago. It is dangerous!

Great shot with interesting pattern and structure! Old buildings have so much to tell, if you see it!

Lovely. Great angles.

I am doing the Saturday photohunter rounds and I'm finding all these Monochromes! Will I ever catch up?!

I like all the lines in this photo. Very nice in B&W!

kden said...

A wonderfully tangled shot of angles, shadows, and light. Fantastic!

john said...

Nice picture. the b/w emphasizes the geometric patterns of the structure.

Daryl said...

Wonderful .. all those old timbers .. they dont build stuff like this any more .. I took a photo of a similarly constructed building/roof in Virginia not long ago ..

Black and white photographs are the ones which last most in my mind and, until today, I hadn't come across the monochrome posts. I'm so pleased!
