to be or not to be


Here's another one of KL's many old buildings destined to be demolished. I hope not but who am I to decide? The block next to it is gone, replaced by an open parking lot. What more can I say?

What a pity. I can see that it's quite run-down, but it does make such a beautiful photograph.

It is not easy to see things used by people being done away with. It is an attractive photograph.

It would be a great shame to pull it down! Lovely bit of rustic charm!

I love old buildings and started to document some that we have lost /and might lose locally. you can sense when something is about to go. If we fight enough Locally, they promise to keep an old building, then let it sit vacant for years, then do a study, then let it sit, and finally, it comes down. One day you walk past and it is gone.

This photo reminds of a Van Gough painting. Can anyone else see it?

Absolutely wonderful shot!

It's a shame to tear this down. It probably needs a lot of work/renovation but developers probably think it's cheaper to tear them down and build a parking lot instead.

Beautiful colors though.

I hope that there will be some preservation in the old Singapore Malaya area. It would be a pity to lose all the colonial styles. Naturally I hope there is also some care for the traditional styles as well. Greetings, Edwin. Fine pics, as always.
