The cotton reels in colour

By mrswoolybill
Does what it says on the tin.
The story of this place is here. For this view I tried out my new-to-me handbag camera by focusing on the railings.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

I like it when wood goes that colour. Old, dried out, faded, dead...

I see you were a good girl and obeyed the rules and kept out - by order!

Like the contrast between the coloured railings and the weathered wood. Would like to see a B/W version. Love industrial images.

Glad you're carrying a pocket camera, I do too! Wink

Take care

Q: Is it cruel to keep cotton reels in a cage?
A: No, it is not. Zoo-born cotton reels do not have the skills to survive in the wild

EPZ too breeds a certain sense of humour that is perhaps better not let loose on the unsuspecting world... Wink
Thanks folks. Something that fascinates me - not just the way that wood bleaches with time, but the way that different materials left to weather together will gradually assume the same tone.
Kath, b&w is here. I linked to the earlier upload because that's where I had given details of the location.

Those bars look sturdy enough to keep anyone out! 😁 Looking good in colour, Moira, and frosty too 👍

Very well painted bars, but after that just let the place go? Cotton drums? Power cable drums more likely!

Cotton reels. Just waiting for giant buttons, giant rubber bands, giant pencils. And people old enough to remember what to do with them.
