On my way last week to Smoky Mountain National Park I stopped and spent a day at the Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham, Alabama (U.S.).

What an excellent set Roger! Must be great to spend a day on such a photogenic location. You managed to create a set with not the usual work (as we've seen before from you) with a good eye for details!
I like them all, but #4,5 and 6 make my favourite range. TFS.

Good mix of subjects, #1 is interesting in how it looks like you're stumbling on a mysterious location (which is the case indeed!).
See my webpage!
A-mount stuff, and few 43 stuff.

Some wonderful images you've captured at this site, Roger. Beautifully framed, composed and presented.
They are all very pleasing to the eye, with perhaps #6 being my favourite in how it draws you in through the dirty broken glass to the rusted pipework inside.
Thanks for sharing.

A fascinating set - with #2 and #5 being my favorites. I would imagine that #2 would also work very well as b/w. the same probably would hold for #1 if the huge amount of negative space would be made a little bit more positive (unearthing a bit more informations from the shadows - without creating a distracting space).

TFS, Roger!
