“Driving back….”


When I was driving back home Sunday I photographed several old structures along the highway. This one was done while doing about 65 mph. It is part of a cluster of derelict buildings, and I find this particular one even more depressing then any of the others. Not sure what it is, it is just plain ugly to me, for one I don’t care for the type of brick work used on the building. I can’t quite figure out what the building might have been. There is a derelict gas station next to it, and this one seems almost like a store and hotel/motel combination. For one thing it has this big concrete apron in front of it, so it must have been built with the idea of accommodating lots of vehicles.

    Somehow you manage to make it a little bit beautiful, Christian. Sad but beautiful.
