    1. I didn't, this old chimney actually stands next to a local restaurant. Remains of a very old house that burned down several years ago.

    1. Abe, this chimney is all that remains of a very old house that burned down several years ago. I am sure it saw its share of popcorn in its day.

  10. Lovely post...beautiful photo. There is an old chimney down the road from me that I love to photograph...I blogged about it back last summer. I would love to know more about the house that it belonged in but I hit a dead end. The history behind them surely would be interesting. Have a good day :)

  11. Beautiful photo, and this quote is one of those that will probably stick in my mind...it goes along with the line from Closing Time that says 'Every new beginning is some other beginning's end.

  12. YES! Because the now is always going, going, gone... Sometimes tears are shed.

  14. That is a beautiful shot. We all need to pay attention to the nows before they become the thens.
    I'm so glad the rain has stopped. I hope it is warming up in your world, too.

  15. I tend to be future-oriented, so constantly reminding myself to enjoy the moment! Photography tends to help me with that.

  18. Great advice. I am getting better at enjoying the moment instead of thinking about the future, but it is not natural to me.

  28. Superb photo. Is that all that's left of a house?

    1. This chimney is all that is left. The house, which was well over 100 years old, burned down several years ago. The chimney continues to stand.

  30. Excellent quote. Sorry to hear about the house burning down, but it looks like the chimney stands strong--and beautiful!

  31. My now is post dinner stupor with some good TV in the line-up. Too bad that old house burned down. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  32. There are many house remains near our home on the VA eastern shore and one year I photographed all that we could find. It seems they take on a new beauty in their deterioration and/or destruction. This one is lovely with the sun and sky scape.

  33. I do enjoy my now! There is so much beauty in the everyday - your image is a perfect example for it. I love it. The sky looks very interesting, a little bit mysterious.
