It is a shame to see such decay, but it does add a certain character to the building and your photo.

I agree with Sharon, the decay does provide character. I just hope it falls into disrepair.

It's always sad to see a beautiful facade like this one let to decay. A bit of vandalism probably didn't help...

Very beautiful but for sure it needs renovation. We hope this will happen!

Decay can be pretty to look at.

One of life's contradictions - beauty in decay.

Jacob said...

I like the colors and can imagine what this place looked like at one time. Perhaps it will be restored to its former grandeur in the future!

A rather poignant photograph, Jose.

There is so sad to see beautiful things in such a bad state. It's still pretty after all.
