It's ... my "best" since I don't have other old structure and bike pics.

Just took it this morning up in cattle country (can you see the black steer?). What I was told this was was a cattle-rancher helper's house and a possibly even older tower for the old railroad. What I think it may be is an observation tower to look for cattle, storms, fires, etc. This is taken from a rail-road right-of-way, but I think it was a very old railroad (civil war / Seminole Indian wars), and am not sure if a tower from that era would still be standing.

Didn't manage to get the bike in the picture. The old house looked like it jumped off the fairytale of Hansel an Gretel...

Snuck in to what used to be the Prison Break set in fort Worth. It was originally a meat packing plant and they converted it to resemble a prison for their exterior shots. Very cool eery place.





And a shot I really love, caught this street artist in the act.

I've lived in Martinsville Va. for 21 years and had no idea this house was overlooking this lake until someone logged the hill.

That shot of the street artist is a fantastic pic. Talk about dynamic range.
