PLAY February - Fujinon 18mm f/2: New Role

Once the chimney for the boiler-room at the former German WW2 army camp at Point-Clos, it is now one of the few remnants of the infrastructure to remain standing... and certainly the tallest. So today, this obelisk-like artefact serves as a reminder of what happened here long ago in the now peaceful forest.

This is for my PLAY project - you can read more about it in my profile - where I'll be using a different prime lens for each month of the year: for February it's the Fujinon 18mm f/2 on an APS-C sensor camera (today the Fuji X-Pro1) - the equivalent of a 28mm lens on a full-frame camera.

BoB... and this is also for Flash of Red February.
The lone chimney has a somewhat sinister impact on the viewer.
Wonderfully evocative composition . This month on my Fuji I have been
shooting fuji's 35mm f/1.4 It is really nice to shoot with prime lenses.

Great detail on the ladder rungs too

Fascinating to see the contrast between the chimney and trees. Like the trees are sheltering it.

Nice POV. Wow, I wouldn't want to climb to the top!

Some rotten spoilsport removed the lower rungs! Terrific shot, though! :)

@dide Many thanks, I sure do, it's wonderful.

The juxtaposition of the obelisk shape with its sharp angles and straight lines is striking against the soft contours of nature. I like this shot very much.

A noble obel(isk) enhanced by the POV.

@juliedduncan If I remember rightly, the lower rungs were removed to prevent the Gung Ho Guys from romping up the tower, getting stuck, requiring emergency services etc.

Don't remember seeing this before. Very cool.

I like this structure
and your image of it

I enjoy how you've shown that the forest is letting us still see what was but that it is being reclaimed.
