96/365 - Plaster

A large crack in plaster, showing lath behind it.

One thing about Copper Country ruins is that, as a rule, only the foundations remain. If the upper walls exist at all, it's only the outside bits -- brick or cement, at most. It's rare to see a glimpse of something so commonplace as plaster, or lath. They've all been torn down, rotted away, or been destroyed over the years. Here's an exception to that rule, up at the old wood-frame entryway to the Quincy Mine's blacksmith shop.

The way you framed this decaying lath makes it a work of art.
