Some building burned down some time ago,
(was it a year ago or maybe even two, or more?...),
but it is only this week that it's been taken down [partially so far].
Truth be told,
it was high time they brought it down
because I know there were some drug dealings going on inside,
if nothing else.
while I thought it sad when it burned,
(yeah, I saw it happened),
because it was a decent looking building,
I still think it's a pity the fire didn't bring down as well the building next to it
that's been abandoned for quite a while now
and sticks out like a sore thumb.
That corner definitely needs some revitalization real bad!!
despite looking at destruction,
my creative eye was drawn to that hole in the wall
and I angled my camera to see through that wall at the sky beyond.
Funny thing though,
while I was taking my pictures,
a boy and a girl walked by,
and the guy was saying that he used to live there,
in the section still standing.
What a coincidence!!
He didn't sound like he was missing the place...
I played around and added some effects to my picture.
And I eventually ended up making it black and white.
A last dramatic moment before it totally vanishes.
I do not know if there are plans for this lot yet.
I only hope this will not remain vacant like the other lot on the next corner,
on the other side of the "sore thumb"...
This used to be home to many people
and it now lays there,
its guts exposed.
It would be nice if good karma came into this place
to find it a new purpose,
bringing comfort and safety to new people.
