Decaying buildings delight me with the layers of structure they reveal.
The peeling layers of paint, crumbling stucco and repairs are very rich in texture and reveal the story of the building’s journey through time. There’s a sense of sadness as well as I think about how so much of the past is being bulldozed down to create something new. What will our lives be like without this connection to the past?
