Well composed Bill. It would have just been so easy to photograph it square and full on.The light has brought out the detail in the concrete.

Another of your great shots making us take a fresh look at everyday objects.

Nice irony with the title, and the exposed rusty bar is certainly the first thing that struck me about the shot. Luckily I'd guess that it's the mantle above the window that needs the added strength, so I hope that was in a better state.

A good example of the damage caused to concrete by the expansion of the corrosion of the iron bars, once used as reinforcing, This is now a big, and expensive, problem that is being addressed by monument conservationists of ancient buildings, etc, in the UK. Nice shot.
