    Decided to not be so shy about posting because I won't learn anything that way. Anyway, here's one I took at a fort in Maine while on vacation. One of the many forts that was never used.



    Thanks for looking.

    Glad you decided to share.

    Looks like you're off to a good start. Good exposure with lots of detail and texture. I think if you could have moved to your left a couple of steps, it would have been a little stronger.

    Make sure you post more...especially if you have questions

    Welcome shelilah! I like the combination of colors, angles and details going on here. Not too far from me is Ft. Washington on the Potomac. I love shooting there. Those old places offer lots of subject matter. Keep at it & keep posting.
    Will shoot photos for food...

    Thanks, guys. The fort is Fort Popham, 1861 - 1918.

    I love this shot. Good work. Ironic how it seems like everything was built better when we had less technology. This place will probably be around for another 300 years.

    It was actually a pretty interesting place as there's some sort of living quarters and tower around there as well. Since it's on the water, there's also lots of other stuff to shoot. Here's a glimpse of the scenery.

    Your last photo reminds me of some of the old coastal artillery posts here in Washington.

    I agree it looks like an interesting place to photograph.
