When I first saw this old pump house, I thought it would make a good subject for a black and white picture. This is a new scan of a negative previously posted on another blog.
You were right! Nothing like old wood buildings for texture and contrast/

An interesting shape for a house!

agreed with Luke, n it got a nice texture too

Un beau N&B bien contrasté pour cette ancienne bâtisse !

Beautiful Don. What an exotic piece of joinery for a humble pump house.

Good morning Don,
the pump house seems very old and no longer be in operation. As a motif in black and white, it looks very good. The light shade, are also very well expressed. I like it. <<Today the sun shines again, and the bees fly from flower to flower. I was lucky and was able to take a picture of a crocus in which sat a bumblebee, searching for nectar. The temperature outside is already 12 ° + degree Celsius. I will use this day for some
photos and take a ride on a bicycle.>> I wish you a nice sunny day. Dear greetings Christel

Don, very elaborate design for a pump house. Perhaps there were other building around that it's style fitted with?

The wear and tear of time are apparent in this super shot of this old pumphouse, wonderful detail

Nice B&W. I like the subtle sky. I think I've seen this before, so how is it different than the earlier scan?
18 Mar 2010 1:47pm
@Harry: The earlier scan was at a reduced resolution and my processing was not up to par.
I like this a lot, seems very elaborate, wouldn't mind it in my garden. As always, a nicely processed black and white shot.

love the tones you captured in this shot.. it does seem like a fine subject for b&w.. :)

They went all out for a pump house. What an extravagant structure for such a purpose.

Beautiful compo . Great silverish monochrome .

It does make lovely b+w. They sure went to a lot of trouble to make a pump house.
18 Mar 2010 3:58pm
Pretty elaborate pump house! But makes for a nice b&w image, for sure!
18 Mar 2010 4:16pm

Superbe maison à pompe, belle texture et belles couleurs ...

A pity the wooden 'shingles' have partly fallen off. A nice building!
As usual the quality is perfect with superb tones and shadows.
