Good capture of a simple scene that turns quite sinister after some thought. Probably just my imagination, since Rob might call it "therapeutic".


Therapy is where you find her.

Another. I have no idea what went on here. The building was immense and filled with strange (to me) machines. One whole wall (the back side, away from the street) was missing, which is how I was able to walk in. I didn't stay long as there were signs that someone had been living there. A few months later, however, the whole thing was demolished.

Four's got a rather cool sense of graphic art to it, too.

Takes the theme beyond decline into abstraction, though I could see a painter having a go at that too, had he found it first!

Nice work, Eric.

Puts me in mind of Fernand Leger and Rene Magritte.

To avoid hijacking another LuLa thread: this is at Har HaBayit, aka al-Haram esh-Sharif, aka the Temple Mount. Taken (via Fujichrome 100, I think) in late summer 1984.

That's a fringe benefit of WP: thread-free and just pix as they come to you! It's a nice genre, actually.

Wasn't it Leger that William Klein studied under in Paris? Interesting (if that's so) that some photographers feel a connecting vibe from some non-photographers, quite without really being aware of it. I think Klein was more interested in graphics than photography at the time...

So many things about vision and perceptions that we probably don't understand too clearly, even if we perhaps suspect they are there somewhere under the surface.

I like that image! Your title reminded me of this place, below. I could only imagine what went on behind those strange, little doors (no company signage to be found). I wasn't going to knock to find out!

Well, takes care of the low pension payments crisis and feeds the happy, unsuspecting tourists doing the green roads...

Country folk were always, well, slightly different.

Very much like your abandoned industrial site series. I guess all from Hamilton?

Various and sundry sites in Toronto, actually. The last one from the area east of Laird Drive. The one above that from a building just east of the DVP between Queen E. and Dundas E. Even at that time (14 years ago?) new businesses and condominiums were moving in. So much change. And many more fences and no-trespassing signs (I don't ignore those).

Just liked the decay, and the fact that I'm not the cat paying to bring it back to snuff for the '19 season!
