Great profusion of parralele lines. The monochrome work so well here!

Excellent image. Undoubtedly they collect the rainwater; not a bad idea even these days. As to the backward slanting roof... Looks like a way to guarantee a leak, but I'm sure there must be a good reason for it.

Interesting image. 'Makes me wonder why do they need to connect a pipe from the gutter. Do they collect the rain water? Hehe!
I like the beautiful tone of this photo.

Laine, these shots were so interesting to see...especially in the sepia tones.

It does make you smile. It also makes you spend a lot of time examining the details. Very well done, Laine.

:D Nice!

Like trying to figure out a puzzle in the newspaper
love the shapes and tones in the image
I am intrigued by the little appendage that you pointed out
there appears to be flashing against the building and piping that carries water to the edge and then drops it to the ground
In one area they collect water in a tank and in other areas it merely goes to the ground.
Interesting indeed

The subject matter and the tone really work well toghter Laine. As for the roof, I think James has it right.

:-) Made me smile too, left me wondering...

It appears that the roof collects water into a cistern-at least the large roof does......interesting image and I love the sepia tone on this........very well done.

Maybe it was the right 1/2 of another little house :)
Toning here is awesome.

I wonder what it was used for in it's time. Nice treatment Laine.

(big smile)
Guest 11-Mar-2006 23:21
Very nice tones Laine - the sepia works very well with this one, and the water pipes add interest.

Guest 11-Mar-2006 22:27
Makes me smile too. :)

Very strange ;-)
Zak11-Mar-2006 21:54
interesting looking sheds! heheh

Can't see any logic in that roof either. Your treatment makes the houses look even more historical. Very nice.

nice picture good colour regards helen
Jim Ross11-Mar-2006 21:29
Nice shot.. Strange having a backward roof...
Guenter Eh11-Mar-2006 21:24
Very interesting historical view of the early settlers! The monochrome gives this classical and timless effect! Nice work Laine!

There must be a reason for that unusual roof, can't think what it might be. Nice b&w
