WHAT'S LEFT



Pictured is what's left of the original Big Gun Mining Company. As I shared in the post yesterday this is where granite was quarried for buildings, monuments and markers.
To see the detail, please enlarge the picture.

I sometimes see these dilapidated buildings as I drive along the highway, but I never turn off the highway to photograph it. I'm glad you did.

it's really sad to see the last days of buildings who had great times in the past

Not a lot remaining now. How long ago did the company close down?

What a nice photo. The barn looks like it is on its way down.

Thanks for the comment on penny candy.

There is a kind of melancholy about these old, abandoned buildings. You captured that well in your photograph.

I like a lot the mood on your two last images.

That's a very striking building isn't it?
