Luxurious decay, on the grandest scale...you have captured it beautifully, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Ray,I've been taking this old girl for years,as she slowly declines,I was told at one point that it was going to be burnt,but that never came off.
This is beautiful, in a sad way. It's dilapidated even more since the last time you posted it... when did you take this? I don't even remember it being this bad when I saw it.
Frank L Croston.: I can't find the date,Ell',sometime in the last twelve months,I'll come across it no doubt.

All I can think of is the risk of lockjaw from stepping on rusty nails. Very real looking.
Frank L Croston.: I never thought of that,I think if you tried walking on this,you would have more than rusty nails to worry about! Thanks, Mary.
Well done Frank. You have shown it in the best possible light
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Janet,glad you think so.

Frank L Croston.: Thank you,much appreciated.
I guess this old lady has given you a wealth of fine pictures over the years Frank, none more so than this one.
Frank L Croston.: She used to have her own library,Brian...smile Thanks very much.

Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Sarah,just tone mapping,you should give Photomatix a try,you can sometimes get a free trial,it's good.
