PATTERNS


The Empire Mine near Grass Valley California had many pieces of vintage equipment and buildings to house them. I was fascinated by the patterns on this one.
Have a great weekend everyone.

Very interesting! Like bricks were on the roof. But what about the sides? Hmmm!

Good capture with this shot. I like the look of the building. Seems planned, yet aged. Cool shot.

I love pattern and old industrial sites. Is that rust or someone decided to do an interesting paint job?

Ben said...

Yes, it is very interesting. I wonder, what makes that pattern of rust,

Leena said...

Now, if I am honest, I don`t know, what to say about those walls with patterns :)
But it is worth photographing, I am sure.
Have a happy weekend, Sue!

Yes, unusual Sue. Wonder if the marks are corrosion of some sort? Interesting shot. - Dave

Well, I've heard a lot of people talk about the Empire Mine, but I still have not been there...

And that is really an unusual photo...
The rust almost looks like faded big block letters...

Carletta said...

It is funny how the building rusted in such a way.
Makes for a very intesting pattern.
Great find!
