Thank you all for your comments on my Levant mine image - the tin mine is no longer working but looked after now by the National Trust.

Still on the mining theme, this is closer to home and is the winding drum for the personnel lift at Poole in Cornwall. Just a museum piece.

V2 shows you the size, Nick is in the picture to give scale!

Still decorating/renovating but on wallpaper now - I am chief paster.Sad

Best wishes to all
Carole

What a huge wheel it is indeed ! I like the close up in V1 - the rust and peeling paint makes for an excellent photo Smile Good work Carole SmileGrinGrin

Glad to see Nick is taking a pic here Carole.
I thought he had cramp in his arms after all the heavy pasted wallpaper you were passing to him !!
And never mind all this pasting.
Your job should be heating up all the Cornish pasties to keep the poor mans strength up !!

Right up my street. Normally I would look for a square crop, with the wheel rim hitting the bottom right corner - but here the miner's face adds so much more, particularly as he is looking at the same subject as we are.

Goor study in tones and textures of this small portion, Carole, and as you say the presence of Nick in V 2 does allow one to appreciate the scale of this industrial artefact.

Holy COW. Thanks so much for V2 'cos I would've no idea how massive this wheel is!

Two superb shots (the light and detail are excellent) and the composition in V1 is perfect Smile

I've never handled wallpaper but chief paster doesn't sound like a job I'd like!
