Colourful stone walls
Stone walls are not as grey and dull as we think; all we have to do is to get close enough to see what’s growing on the stones and between them. In my opinion, they are also an impressive monument over the men who once built them. They were built to last and transporting all the stones to the site and make a wall of them must have been hard work.
I can admit that I let the computer help bring out all the colours in this photo but things didn’t go too far, so I decided to post it.
Slag from the blast furnace used to be a common construction material in its neighbourhood substituting brick in the past and was often used if the building didn’t have to look “posh”. Besides, it was a smart way of using something that is more or less useless.
