Killyleagh a village on Strangford Lough.

This was a village coal quay with tiny lock up coal stores where coal men and their horses pulled up each day and loaded up the coal. The coal had come in by ships.

It was a part of history.

The whole area was demolished and developed as apartments and houses ~ what a shame

    the absolute precision of the geometry is something i love. zero convergence is what makes great architecture shots stand out from the pack. the simplicity of the geometry really is powerful in your toning here. well done.
