sad that they let a building get in this bad of shape, but it still makes a beautiful photograph...

Kate said...

It's interesting, isn't it, that decay can make some of the best photos!

Olivier said...

j'aime bien le vieil escalier

Leif Hagen said...

Another gorgeous photo like Kate said! By the way, you'll see that I borrowed your idea on my blog today...

I agree -- as much as I hate to see old building etc. in decay, they do make for terrific photos! And this is one of those terrific ones! Hope your week is off to a great start, JM!

Lots of subtle colors in this, and I like the inlaid steps.

The colors on the wall are pleasing to the eye. I like the brick pavement.

The descending steps may be symbolic of the decay of this building. Or are they ascending...

You are the master of decay as I so stated on Images - L & L Photography today...

If you haven't checked that out, you will note I gave you credit for being a "master" and linked to your blog.

(The "Morning Run" post was yesterday)

I'm really sorry you're having a problem with the thumbnail. I think Small City Scenes is, too. I have no clue, other than I'm using Mozilla Firefox and sometimes what I do doesn't work well with IE...

The Images thumbnail shows up fine on all of my blogs, so I have no idea how to fix it.

The problem could be an internal one with Blogger, also...that does happen sometimes. :-)

The decay actually adds to the charm of the place! Beguiling photograph!

Randy said...

That is so beautiful. I love the steps too.

I like it, very nice composition and textures/colors !

T. Becque said...

Oooh, this is just lovely (photographically speaking, I guess not so lovely for the building :)

Halcyon said...

Decaying, but with a certain beauty.

Joan Elizabeth said...

Yummy. The wear, the repairs, the muted colours. They remind me of a building I keep admiring in Kandos which I will photograph and post one day.
