Wall: CB&W

I thought about going the route I went with the “silence” weekly photo challenge and using “walls” as a springboard to talk about something political. But I started the spring term this week so I’m talking politics quite enough at school and work, thank you very much.

So here are some beautiful old walls. Like the fantastic cobblestone wall from Genesee Country Village and Museum. I love the antique-y look of the scene, with wagon wheels and (I think) the belt (that can’t be the right name) for a barrel leaning against the wall from a house in the Colonial part of the living history museum.

These photos, of another stone wall from GCVM. The building is, I think, from the roughly same time period as the cobblestone wall. I wish I’d asked someone who worked there why the types of stone used varied so dramatically–money? region? changing techniques?  I’ll try to remember to ask next time I go.

Finally here’s an interesting photo I took at the old Revolutionary War cemetery in Pittsford, NY. I loved the contrast of the neat brick wall (of the old one-room schoolhouse on the edge of the cemetery) and the rough bark peeling off a huge pine tree.
