Thread: The Dibnah In Me

    The Dibnah In Me

    A very simple image but I liked the warmth of the bricks. The wall is curved by the way

    C&C welcome as always.

    Bricklaying craftsmanship at it's best.

    Just wonder if people from 'the rest of the world' are wondering 'Who is Dibnah'.

    Indeed, the inside of most chimneys are, but this is very clean!

    Tell me, there's a small specular 2 courses (1/3) of the way up, is that deliberate?

    I can't decide what it is, or if it helps.
    It does give the eye something to latch onto though.

    I am reminded of Donald's night on the wet tiles which lacked something like this.

    You're really turning out some good 'SoLo' stuff recently Steve, well done.

    Thanks,

    Thanks Dave and all the others who have commented.

    I am not sure that the anomaly is deliberate It threw my eye in an intriguing sort of way.

    You are too kind about the SoLo stuff (its a play on family initials and I am thinking of changing my company's name along those lines). After 3 months with my first DSLR I am starting to feel more comfortable with its settings. I still get a buzz when I take it out of it's bag. I guess when that wears off I will start to think about a more robust Canon model. In the meantime the 450D is more than adequate as an introduction to the DSLR.

    Just wonder if people from 'the rest of the world' are wondering 'Who is Dibnah'.
    Ha. oop north Fred Dibnah is one of our folk heroes. Fred is a steeple jack and engineer from an era past. His fame is mainly due to demolishing most of the victorian brick factory chimneys in the North West of England. Sadly he died recently, but his Andy Capp figure is as much a part of Lancashire as black puddings and clogs.
