In Northern Ireland, most of the ruins are new...
Not as true as it was a few years ago.
I'm sure I have lots of things I could put on here. In the emantime here's another on an ecclesiastical theme. The old monastic site on Devenish Island, County Fermanagh.
Not as well preserved as Salisbury Cathedral (love to go back there some time - your pictures brought back some good memories...) but pretty elderly. The really old church (foreground) dates from about 850, or thereabouts. The round tower was built after the threat from our Danish cousins (Vikings) had gone, around 1250.
I know, I know... I should have stood a few feet to the left and not had the gravestone directly in front of the tower.
Oriental Pearl TV Tower - Shanghai
Since we don't seem to have many members from China, I will pitch-in.
Here is an interesting structure. Maybe not so much a building as a tower...
...well there is a building at the base. ;)
From my last trip to China.
Carmel Mission (Mission San Carlos Borromeo) est.1770
Here is a place that I have visited since I was in 3rd grade. Junipero Serra is buried here. A nice place to shoot and meditate. If you are ever in Carmel (CA) it's a must see.
