Another example of how great decay looks through your lens. Although it really is a shame so many of these wonderful places have gone to ruin.

Really over due for a deep cleaning and paint job!
Another great DECAY photo!

You always manage to find beauty in decay, JM.
A fine image...

Re Halcyon Travels: it is indeed a 1942 Packard Clipper.

So many textures to this decay, it's great! As always JM!

Abandoned buildings seem so sad. But I love the look of peeling paint, I admit.

Lowell said...

A close-up view of decay that conveys sadness and despair! Can this place be saved if someone wanted to save it? Looks like it might have to be torn down and construction started anew.

What a waste! I t could be such a lovely place!

Another lovely image.. a shame it's been left to rot.

Randy said...

The master strikes again! I love it.

The crazed paintwork and eaten away timber as well as the stone make this a great image for me.
