No it doesn't need straightening

The only thing that is actually straight is the sign post. The result of pumping out brine

Close enough, heh!
Bill Phillips: Good enough for me mate
Your explanation makes the photo more interesting! Loved the video - I learned, but shall quickly forget...
Bill Phillips: You might find this helps as an aide memoir E

Droitwich has wonderful walls of different materials - and so much sun -sun and salt are essentials for us human beans!
Bill Phillips: Indeed they are Philine and we have both in abundance
love the shot and the treatment Bill... it would take a lot of masons years to straighten this image out! grin
Bill Phillips: It surely would Peter

The only thing you have to figure out in images like this is which line to choose. HA! Gotta love it, Bill.

And where in the world did you find that video!
Bill Phillips: You tube. There is a series of Horrible Histories books which are good fun.

Of course it doesn't, Bill - don't you worry about Big M
Bill Phillips: If you see old photos of Droitwich the High Street is almost level and so are the buildings!

Very interesting: bung it into ShiftN and it might give it a nervous breakdown
Bill Phillips: It would wreck it totally.

Near enough is good enough might have been the rule back then.
Bill Phillips: They started off straight!
You've been at that naughty hdr pot again - nice one! If a trifle garish smile
Bill Phillips: I know. I like to rev it up a bit sometimes.
I like the treatment Bill!
Bill Phillips: Cheers Martin smile

I'm hoping this series will soon include the sausage factory. I had the impression from your namesake that Droitwich is usually wet but this shows that not to be the case. Mind you, he says the same of Scotland.
Bill Phillips: He is a man who deals in stereotyping places. I wonder what he would say about Milton Keynes?
Lovely graphics picture Bill!
Bill Phillips: Thanks very much Richard
I love this, Bill. So many different types of bricks with different colours and textures. The b&w building at the end just finishes it off wonderfully.
Bill Phillips: There is quite a mixture in the High Street Pauline
Interesting that everything is all wonky, ShiftN would certainly have a problem with this.
Bill Phillips: It would have a nervous breakdown Brian!
Great stuff Bill. Your HDR work is very good
Bill Phillips: Thank you kindly Janet. I am still only a novice
The effect works well with these town centre pictures, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thanks very much Graeme

No straightening? Au naturel? Mmmm. OK, you are a colleague grandpa, so I will believe it. Is it the brine or the fact of sogginess that caused this. Or has it not been researched yet?
Bill Phillips: It is the brine. There was a pumping station close to the High Street and over a period of years the Ground sank!

This shows what it used to be like
i like the details brought out in this image, Bill. i may have posted several skewed images, this is much better.
Bill Phillips: Hahaha Nothing could have straightened this Ayush
