Fixer-Upper

WELL! What can I say??? Stunned from my FIRST EVER HC for my last upload!!

So that's a new job AND an HC in one week, wonder what the third good thing might be Wink

One of Roach End Barn sunset on the 27th September 2008.

I really do hope that no-one ever buys this (it would make a super des-res) and invests the pennies, what would us toggers do then, poor things??

Anyway, had to wait to post this as the other two members of W.A.S.P. beat me to it (just proving their manners, yet again!) Grin

Anyway, hope you are having a good Friday - - think we're planning on watching the Dark Knight, and then off to my Dad's Christmas party tomorrow Smile

Thanks for looking - - comments always welcome (think you might know that by now!)

Cheers!

BTW - - LARGE is just that bit more derelict! Wink

Well yes class will always shine through - but the light from such a pin source is always going to be a problem for me. My eye keep going to the setting sun and I am missing the wonderful 'contra jour' stuff going on left side.

This is a great shot however - and I am really happy I am able to express my clickiness.

Best wishes

Don't worry Fran. This building belongs to us and we're not about to sell it in the near future.
Mind you we could start charging a toggers fee. I'll sort out a discount of £10 for a season ticket. Just send the cheques to me and I'll forward them on Wink
Really like the shot and well done with the HC on the last shot Smile
