So wonderful to see such OLD buildings, so much history and I do find it fascinating!! Terrific capture as always, JM! Hope your week is off to a good start!!

I like the way the edges are rounded and worn down. A place that really takes you back in time.

Amazing shapes: they looks naturally 'sandblasted'!

I like the perspective, with the city peeking out in the distance, and the light and shadows. Good shot, as usual!

Love the play of shadows and light and the colors in this picture! And I like the way you caught the detail in the concrete.

Looks solid!
And the view must be fantastic!

BLUE sky and sunshine!
Happy new week!
