that is so cool! i'm kinda surprised you don't use it for something. storm shelter, maybe?
We may use it for something one of these days Tex but for now it's just one of those thing I haven't had time to get to yet.As far as storm shelters goes, the house we are in has a full walk out basement and in one end of the basement there is a "safe room" for storms and it is completely concrete, all four walls, the ceiling and floor, all concrete. There's one small window in the room so you can get out if the house were to collapse around you so you can't get to much safer than that in a storm. Of course, I would be outside taking pictures! LOL
What character that cellar has. Love the way the quarried rocks are laid. I've often wondered how those Masons were able to lay a ceiling without having it all come falling down on them!Lots of photo opps around the old homestead it seems!
It's magic Parker, just like the pyramids! LOLI'm hoping for lots more photo ops around the place this fall when I actually will feel like getting outside and walking around. This 100 degree weather is keeping me very close to the AC.
That would make a great wine cellar.
Great photos, lots of character in these shots and the lighting is perfect!I think every home should have a storm/root cellar... If I had one I would have it plugged full of canned goods, spuds and other dry goods, always good to have a little extra set aside if not for yourself then for your neighbor should they ever need it.
Thanks Paul! These were shot as five bracketed shots each and then run through the new Nik Software's HDR Efex Pro 2. I'm having fun playing with the new software. I know what you mean about being prepared. I've been doing it since I was young and we keep some supplies on hand to get us and the family through any emergency or hard times. "Be Prepared", it's the Boy Scout motto!
HelloI adore this writing. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
It looks like a place where one could really cool down in this hot, hot weather!
It most definitely is. The temperature drops about 20-25 degrees once you get into the cellar.
Thank you for taking the time to look at our blog, we appreciate your comments!
