In looking for subjects to fulfil the ‘abandoned’ photo challenge, I came across a house with the end wall completely covered in slate tiles except for a small single window. The wall was so unusual that I had to turn around and check it out for myself. The slates were each individual, of varying shade and many with coarse lines across them. It reminded me of a jigsaw.
However, for me the the setting of this old house at the crossroads with brooding clouds behind really made the scene. So I give you the House at the Crossroads:
Followed by the Wall of Slates.
These old houses seem to hold so much character.
