Do gnomes count?

Don't know why I'm asking, don't know where there are any  :D

Well, we have no architectural concrete hereabouts, unless you count what is one of the ugliest bits of 60's urban housing anywhere in Europe on the outskirts of town. So I went for part of the war memorial. Our memorial is almost entirely made of concrete; my entry is a shot of one of the satellite obelisks that surround the main needle.

I have now so many concrete photos that I'll find it difficult to choose one! And I'll probably choose the wrong one anyway.

As I said, I ended up with so many photos, that I am a bit lost as to which one to choose. In the end I'm going with this one: the sad end of an office block or a multi storey car park, I don't know. Anyway, a nice insight (literally) into reinforced concrete and what it looks like, when one tests the reinforcement to the limits!

WHAT GOES UP ...

Changed my mind about my entry.
I'm now in with this 'action shot.'
Same demolition site, same building, same title.

I realised just how little concrete there is around our local town, so I'm in with this, it's the multistory carpark.

Sorry I ran out of time for this one. Working Sundays as well at the moment but not complaining. My subject was to be Preston Bus Station, the largest piece of concrete in our area.

gosh, yes - that would've made a good entry. A good old piece of 60's architecture...
