as time goes by


As developed as a city tries to be, there will always be pockets where the decay of time wins hands down. I was walking to meet a friend and decided to take one of the smaller, less-used lanes to get to him. I came across this.

Decay is good - it does away with what is no longer necessary and fuels renewal.A common sight in developing countries - fortunately or unfortunately.

Very atmospheric looking building - you can imagine what kind of stories the walls could tell.

you know whats interesting is the even though this is a photo of decay, the decay shows artistic style - I like this photo - it almost looks like it was photoshoped. I think this is an excellent shot and gives hope for much potential for the people living there.

well, following frederik's question...can I email you? I need expert advice on larger pic. Yes, I've read Kala's guidance, but I still couldn't figure out how to change the template's width properties. I'm so clueless...help! thanks, Ed :)

I love this type of shot - it's like a slice of life. Great compostion, allowing the shot to illustrate the history and allowing the story to make the shot. bravo.
