I believe a long line of the Gutteridge clan worked here producing things of strange design that had no apparent purpose. Their total failure to persuade anyone of the merit of their products did not deter them.

 

Being right brained is a mixed blessing

I think this place will be very crowded if the Guttteridge clan has a family reunion here.
Great shot, great shades of B&W.
Bill Phillips: Anywhere would be very crowded if the Gutteridge clan had a reunion
You've made this clutter look very good in HDR'ish B&W!
Bill Phillips: Gentle HDR. 5 pictures

LOl at Astrid! I now start to read Chad's biography, and I hope to experience more about the Gutteridge clan. This is place where the people worked hard, your treatment does emphasise this feeling and this fact.
Bill Phillips: You haven't actually bought a copy have you?
This is a place were men were men and they helped forged this great nation of ours.Stop picking on Chad.
Bill Phillips: You pick on me

I think there has been many hot and heavy hours of work has occurred in there
Bill Phillips: It would have been hard and dirty and a life of poverty

It just shows that Chad comes from a line of hard, skilled workers, Bill
Bill Phillips: Wonder what happened when the line reached him then?

"Producing things of strange design that had no apparent purpose"

Sounds like HDR to me Bill.

But then I am still in the dark ;o)
Bill Phillips: HDR indeed Mike... you should have seen it before I toned it down!
I like the look of this shot Bill......plenty to study smile
Bill Phillips: Pleased to have entertained you Martin
My property was once the local blacksmiths. Excellent HDR.
Bill Phillips: Better than my brother's house which was once a slaughterhouse.

Did they produce mosaics of images to be used to amuse/entertain/baffle/bewilder followers of the clan? I bet this single forge could probably produce something similar to the Titanic (and just as long lasting).
Bill Phillips: Those would burn well in that furnace

Being right brained is much better than being wrong brained.

I thought the gutt's forebears hung about in the army - which is another way of doing something without apparent purpose, mind you.

The picture is an excellent one.
Bill Phillips: Don't believe a word he tells you.
I suspect that they were not too keen to reveal their secret processes to the eyes of competitors, Chad smile
Bill Phillips: For fear of them dying of excessive laughter

The B/W treatment REALLY brings out the textures in this remarkable capture!
Bill Phillips: Thanks Bonnie. I thought it suited b&w
There's a real wealth of images in this place.
Bill Phillips: There is indeed Brian
What a fabulous image Bill!
Bill Phillips: That's very kind of you to say so Richard
It certainly looks like an interesting place, full of mystery.
Bill Phillips: All part of our industrial history Sheila
The real thing, not a forge-ry smile
Bill Phillips: Very good grin
