The security office for the old derelict springfield brewery in wolverhampton UK really caught my eye. so I had to share it with you, the place is magical… the brewery was burnt down by vandalls in 2004… a huge blaze consumed the building, built in 1873, commisioned by william butler, and finally resided in the hands of mitchells and butler breweries… the building is now in rubble, only the outside walls and main gates are left standing.. it’s guarded day and night at the moment with barbed wire running around the entire parameter.. makes a great picture though =] one day i’ll get inside… MU HAHAHA

    Love everything about this, but the cone is just so perfect..great shot!!!

  • one thing that niggles me is the white blocks above the window and door aren’t straight, but if i make them straight the rest of the picture isn’t.. and i agree the cone makes it! thanks

    I have a new group called Those Ubiquitous Traffic Cones and would love to have this image in there. Come on over and check it out; join in.

    About This Group
    You see them everywhere, orange ones, red ones, yellow, green and whte ones; little ones, big ones; blocking off traffic, directing pedestrians, indicating hazards, sitting on top of a fire hydrant (no, I didn’t stage that). But, where else can you find them? Again, they’re everywhere, especially where you least expect them. These are the ones we really want to see. Whip out those cameras, or paints, pencils, papers and canvas and join in. You writers out there, give us an ode to traffic cones. T-shirt designers, bring ‘em on.

    It would also be nice if you would let us know the circumstances. Where are they? Why are they there? What is the meaning of life? Okay, you can skip that last one. It might be a little too heavy for this forum. Unless traffic cones ARE the meaning of life. In that case, bring it on. The funnier, the better.

    Send us your beautiful, average, downtrodden, beaten up traffic cones. They have to be in the picture, but not necessarily the main subject (although that’s best).

    That is the main rule for this group. We are going to keep moderation to a minimum. We are not going to moderate or rule you to death. However, If we see images that do not have those ubiquitous traffic cones, they will be shot down in flames (rejected) with no further explanation.

    There will be occasional challenges, and features will probably be posted every couple of weeks, depending on our schedules (and the number of works received).

    Come on and check out our art. Leave comments. Cheer us up. If you need cheering up yourself, maybe we can help. Hopefully we can at least make you giggle a bit. If you laugh out loud, even better. But let us know. Don’t take life too seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway, so enjoy it. Besides, if laughter really is the best medicine, we just might prolong your life. Hey, ya never know.
