I totally agree with Lois, it's wonderful!

Ashtonian said...

That's fantastic.
There is so much information that that picture has to tell.

The birds
The grass
how the chimneys have aged.

It's my favourite by far

The photo is well worth an award.

It is sharp, crisp, and feels alive.

I was sorry I missed voting, but then I wouldn't have been able to choose a favorite.

Jilly said...

Fascinating set of chimneys with that wonderful old red brick.

Congratualte yourself with a worthy winner.

Kate said...

You are so clever to have us choose for you. The object is so different and it stands out with the tones and the composition. Now I have to go back to check out the others again!

I've never seen chimney pots like that before today! Stylin' shot for theme day!

Rambling Round said...

Such a sharp, clear shot of the chimney pots! It's got my vote too.

I like this - makes me think of 'Mary Poppins' when Bert and friends do Step In Time.

Whimsical chimney pots, wonderful color in the old brick, and the birds adding activity - best!

Julie said...

great choice and so much real detail.

Hilda said...

I still don't know what chimney pots are. They look like little castle towers and I love the birds sticking their heads into them.
