Island House

Took this while out today

This type of building makes my blood pressure rise, a beautiful old building, made funky by the dandelion art work ( which i quite like) then gets covered in graffiti ( how do they do that on the top ?) windows bordered up etc next it will be burnt down, demolished, and a glass high rise building built and if you want a photo of a modern building i took a few of them as well

leave the old buildings alone just clean them up and look after them !

ok that has got that of my chest now please artify and enjoy

Re: Island House

Flipped it. I agree with you about people ripping those buildings down.

Re: Island House

Looks like the building from the movie Blow-Up.. (where I think the photographer got a propeller?... Or maybe I have my movies mixed up.. that was over 40 years ago!)

Re: Island House

I certainly agree that these historical buildings should be preserved, Palms. Perhaps some rain will hold those pesky demolition guys at bay for awhile.

I hope the rain does put them off great effects including the street light

Re: Island House

if you make almost 180 degree turn here is one of the modern style buildings ( referred to as the "slug" by locals )

yes it is a building and what's more a shop ! ! ! I wonder what will be made of that in 100+ years ?
