Old Pit

I think this is an old pit; not entirely certain.

This was seen at the blast furnace ruins I somewhat-recently visited.
I like that, whilst some of the remnants remain visible, they’re slowly disappearing. The idea of nature is at work here and so this is a scene of change, I think.

I wonder as to the purpose of this part of the furnace. Perhaps it had to do with slag removal.

This is my submission into the one hundred-and-forty-sixth Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

The theme for this one is “Focusing on the Details“.

I think that, whilst this photo doesn’t quite focus on any particular detail of this pit, it does have a lot of detail; hence my inclusion in this week’s challenge.

The challenge is hosted by four people and cycles weekly:

Week 1 – Patti

Week 2 – Ann-Christine aka Leya

Week 3 – Amy

Week 4 – Tina

This week’s challenge is curated by Patti. Next week Amy is curating.

The challenges are pretty fun and there’s a lot of room for interpretation that doesn’t get in the way of enjoyment. If you’re into photography, then I suggest participating, or at the least checking out what other people are submitting.

I hope you enjoy.

    The eye of a photographer is so often drawn to decay – there is something beautiful to be found in it. Your image does indeed make one wonder about the pit’s original purpose.

    Yes, SH, it’s a mystery. Now I’m wondering about the history of this place and it’s purpose. My eye is drawn to the foreground. The texture, shape and condition of the stones is intriguing.
