In Portimao (Algarve) there is a shopping street where you can fin this.
It's some kind of mill press for corn or grapes or olives (No sure) but its rather interesting to look at. Anyone who knows what it is for your comments are appreciated. Have a good shadow Saturday...
A huge thank you to Colleen - (CollenA) - for her kind UA on yesterday's "Close to God" shot. My apologies for not getting it right... Shows you what happens when you do things in a hurry...

No idea of its use, Isabel, but it certainly casts a fine shadow Smile Carol

Interesting post seemingly taken in harsh light, a good shot and if you were able to correct the verticals even better - you could try downloading Shiftn it's a freebie and easy to use especially if you choose the automatic straighten, it is very effective, I use it myself sometimesWink actually V2 is the better of the two for straight verticalsWink

Remember seeing this many years ago Isabel. The guy I was staying with didn't either. But it has produced a good shadow for you. GrinGrinGrin Peter.

Looks like a tomato press but I don't really know.
Brilliant street pictures, Isabel.

It is to crush olives for olive oil. We used to have one in the north and wonderful olive-oil it produced too.

Nice street image with great dof. In Indian villages they use similar rolling stones to produce oil from seeds.

I don't think there's any need for perspective correction, this just needs to be rotated about 1.5 anti-clockwise - it's not level, that's the only problem. Pretty well any software will enable you to straighten.
The key thing to remember is that in the absence of an obvious horizontal (such as a sea horizon), aim for the vertical nearest to the centre of the frame to be true.
