. . .browsed real estate

Although the economy and my current personal situation make it necessary for me to move, I don't think I'm quite at the point that I will chose any of these structures to rehab for my new home. Although, never say "never," I guess. . .

These are some shots of buildings in the recycling center I visited earlier this month. For someone who is as seemingly obsessed with circles as I am, how lucky was I to find this little round hut?

In this shot, I played with the editing features of Picasa, just for fun. . . made everything but the vine black/white/gray, although the building itself, without any editing, was amazingly colorful. The shingles that remained on the upper portion of the structure were red.

And who wouldn't put stained glass windows in a barn containing all kinds of trashy goodness?

And here's a shot that I did not edit to black and white. . . this is the grain elevator across the street from the junkyard.

Have an artful day, everyone.

What great shots Mary! You have such a talented eye for interesting lines, shapes and convergences. The circle hut covered with circles is a circle lovers dream!

Very interesting textural shots. I love the one with the tree in colour. I love circles too so your little circular structure was pleasing.
