A nice ruinous patchwork (esp. with the placement of the stronger lines running through it). Reminds me of a photo series I saw recently documenting nature's reclamation of structures.

JC--I'd love to see that series. I think your homey once told me about some documentary that tried to figure out how long, hypothetically, it would take for nature to reclaim all sorts of structures around the world. I love that kind of stuff.

The photo. Well, thanks. They're not all going to be equally strong, right? This was very much on the borderline. I was too tired to search for another, and it captured my mood nicely.

Would nature hypothetically have to reclaim the structure, to the point where no stone is left unturned, i.e., no stone is left upon any other stone?

And would it get rests or work constantly, and would it get sledgehammers brought to it on an as needed basis?

I mean, either way, that would take forever...

On one hand, the building is beautifuly ruinous. On the other hand nature is taking its good sweet time destroying it. What I wouldn't give for Mother Nature to have a sledgehammer and Andy's will to conquer! Enough already! Fall down, will ya?
