How many of us really notice chimneys?
I've glanced at them, noting that some are purely functional, some are interestingly shaped, some are very old.
My friend Jayne, from Our Great Southern Land, has a thing for old chimneys and after hanging around on her site for some time, I've been noticing chimneys more than I used to.
These first four photos are chimneys that I spotted while walking along the top end of Portrush Road on my way home from Hahndorf.
After I got off the bus of course, I didn't walk all the way from Hahndorf.....
I like the intricate workmanship on these lovely old examples.
