Thank you for looking at my photoblog: I also have artwork on http://artefacts.etsy.com and

SOUL AFLAME from The bosom of Mother Nature, United Kingdom

The textural variances captured here are wonderfully detailed, Kate. Patched and bodged brickwork of different eras clash and combine to reveal the degradation of this once proud structure. Nicely observed and captured.

This is so interesting, all the different brick work tell their own story of a building that has been 'renovated' more than once.
