so we have old bricks or stone, trees in a puddle, plaster or tree bark... all wrong but there is plaster on brick and paint - and the 'trees' are mycellium / hyphae of the true dry rot fungus - Serpula Lacrimans

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mycellium

I'd give you 38% lol

Here is some of the 'fruiting body' - the fleshy mushroom textured bit with the spores coming from the reddy / brown area - enough to cover the floor of the rooom this was found in.

Your macro pic was quite beautiful I thought.

Oh, man, that's quite the disaster area!

{Photography.42.1551}: Marcus {coyote13} Fri, 28 Sep 2012 18:21:02 EDT (HTML)

indeed, annie, there is a gruesome beauty about the thing.

coyote, I've seen some serious disasters with dry rot. If it's not dealt with it can eat whole buildings.

So can termites...

off topic, slightly, this is the other side of the same room with a crack caused by corrosion of steel lifting the building above the steel. So the crack you see does not have the lower bit settling doun but the upper bit of the crack rising. The oxide of iron molecule is 10x the volume of non-rusted iron, (Fe) So if a 1" bar rusts fully it will be 10" thick. It's 'irresistible' and either the local material deforms and gets crushed or the material gets pushed out of the way - like this...

just so as you know... lol

Thanks for the details, Marcus. Reminds me of geology!

If anyone has been to Dublin, Republic of Ireland--or if anyone knows
anything about the O2 concert venue in the Docklands area of that city
--maybe you can tell me what or who these fellers are s'posed to
represent. They are in the parking area next to that O2.

No idea here, but they sure are interesting. . . and unusual.

Hello Rich, nice to see you....so they're just bears - I thought they
might have to do with rugby what with all the stitching!

Spotted along the Coquihalla Highway heading east through BC from
Vancouver. What is the heck is this building, anyway?

Gad, looks like a prison guard tower!

Purple martin house?

--------

{Photography.42.1562}: Steve Lacey {masked} Thu, 29 Nov 2012 18:20:58 EST (2 lines)

It's fairly big. Might be 6 feet high and a similar diameter. There
were several along the roadside, maybe ten over a thirty-mile stretch.

Ask eepy - she lives out there, though I don't know the highway you're
speaking of.

Storage bins for salt?  They use a lot of salt on the Coq!

they look like they could be vents from a tunnel. Or perhaps a secret underground bunker (lol)

overflow drains

I thought they'd be pretty scarce by now.

Oh really? You mean I actually guessed right?

I'm old, that's why I thought I knew what it was! Toronto streets had lots of them when I was little.

Does that mean I have to find a mystery pic? If someone comes up with a pic before I can find one, please do.

Here's one. I know what it shows--I just wanna know what I'm seeing.

I took this shot on the edge of a rapidly-thawing lake. The ice is
candling and has moved away from the shore. Under the ice you can see
more ice. What looks like smoke in this picture seems to be emanating
from some of the under-the-surface ice. The plume follows a trail made
by an ATV or something on the surface ice. You can see the plume
breaks up--there 's more than one trail and each plume seems to follow
a trail.

Anybody got any idea what's causing this effect?
