How could one abandon such a beautiful building?
So difficult to comprehend.

I like the building. The mime/statue guy is kind of creepy though. Looks like he wants a robotic hug.

Sad, such a beautiful building.

Those people amaze me, how do they manage to keep so still for so long. What a hard way to earn money!!

Have a good weekend Diane

Your patterns are fabulous, JM.

This building would be incredible with a good cleaning and renovation.

The building looks like a little TLC might fix it up. The added attraction of the mime and his dog seem to add just the right touch.

So sad to see such beautiful buildings being abandoned and left to decay!!! I always love the tile work! Superb! Enjoy your weekend!

An excellent image where the decay is mitigated and diluted by the black and white cobblestones and by the street artist!

Looks like such a wonderful structure, what a sad state. Love the little doggy.

The mime's sad face echoes the aura of the abandoned building and the little dog scratching his fleas. Plus, there aren't many coins in the mime's plate. Talk about a tough way to make a living!

My guess is this a popular location hence the street artist. Nice, creative shot on your part.

A sad shot for many reasons!

You did it again... The dog, the "performer", the beautiful decaying building...

Randy said...

That little dog did not want you take his photo.

There are a lot of stimulus points in this photo. Very intriguing!
