In ruins..


Yesterday I had the rust, today I have the ruins.  Actually I had a hard time deciding between the two representations of rust and ruins.  This ruin is located on the grounds of the Tovrea Castle.  Remember when I was working on opening that historic site to tourists?  You can see one of my posts of the castle here.  It seems like I spent every weekend out there back then.  Well it's been open now for at least three years and doing rather well.  They were hoping that at sometime in the future they could restore some of these old out buildings.  They are in pretty bad shape so I think "restoration" might not be what will happen.  I think "rebuilding" will be more like it.

Very ramshackle looking indeed!

I kind of like them the way they are -- but I suspect the lawyers don't. :)

I have never seen these buildings. Very rustic!

The restoration of Tovrea Castle was such a success Sharon, all that work was worth it.. not so sure about your ruins here, they look a little too sad to recover :(

It looks interesting the way it is, but of course a rebuilding would restore it to its proper use.

Wow, that castle is quite something and I love how you caught a plane over it! This of course is quite another story, it has a ghost town feel to it that I love.

I think they are well past "restore". Sharon! Makes a great pic though.

Rebuilds would be the order of the day.

I think you are right Sharon! They look pretty scary, but make a great picture.

I wouldn't set foot inside. Rattlesnakes!

How have I ever missed that.

Ruins? Check!

Nope, Sharon, I doubt that restoration is in the cards for this poor thing.

But still beauty in these ruins!

The light, shading, and textures emphasize the age. It's a great image.
