    Beautiful! How much are you asking for it?

    I don't think this is for sale, Cristóbal.
    It was built by the slate company as the company store 150 years ago. It's in really good shape and still occupied.
    The house is near my daughter's house and it is really eye catching. There are three stacked slate houses here.

    I see quite a few slate and stone houses in the Appalachians. No reflection on your shot, but I find such architecture cold and uninviting. Different strokes for different folks. Stay safe, Willard.

    I always wanted to lie naked on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace. Cracker Barrel didn't take kindly to it.

    Willard...

    I like it...but then again I really enjoy architectural images, new or 150 years old. Impressive that the structure is that old, hard to tell.

    Playing with the image a bit, creatively of course...go 100% B&W then back off saturation say 40%-60%, might make for an interesting effect. Very striking B&W structure with a hint of the color peeking through.

    Thanks for sharing this one.

    I am An Engineer, Tom, and I like the construction material and methods.
    I like the subdued color of the slates and I am an absolute color freak.
