I Knew It Had Seen Better Days...

I see this building on my ride home from work. It was until one day last week covered with vines. I knew it had seen better days, but what I saw one day last week surprised me nonetheless.
The vines still cover a portion of the wall, but now it is on the ground. I had noticed the yellow tape that morning, but this portion of the building was at my back. It wasn't until I was on my way home that what had happened came into view.

I often wonder about the stories these old buildings could tell. I suspect this building would have many tales to tell. The crack reminds me of the crack in the image of a broken heart. Seems appropriate.

    amazing what you notice while riding a scooter/bike. You are more in tune with the landscape and actually "see" more.

    Looks like too much money to restore that building. It's going to fall down soon anyway

  2. Yes, I'm expecting more to fall if it isn't demolished soon. Many of these older buildings have been restored. It is true they don't build things as they once did.

    I agree completely on seeing more. The commute used to be dead time filled with radio. Now, every day is an adventure. I'm grateful for the change.

    I do so appreciate your stopping by and your comments.
