Grant, this is marvellous. The perspective from right to left diminishing. The angled shapes add so much here. And those shadows are so "open" next to the light. balanced so pleasingly as always.

I like the warm tones of this black and white
Great row of structures. The architecture reminds me of some in Arkansas.

@Carraol: thanks carraol!
I love the triangular shadow and the play of all the rectangles. The faded writing too - it almost looks like a shadow, a memory of what it used to be. It has the feeling of a monument from a lost culture, I think because of the white tones and lighting- it reminds me of black and white photographs of the pyramids. How odd!

What a wonderful jumble of geometry at play here. The dumpster is a masterful touch.

it seems people leaves this area forever, great atmosphere!

I like the way the shadow breaks up the straight lines. Well done.

I see no signs of spring at this place – nice irony Grant! And there is something very exact and yet tentative (because it is fleeting) about the meeting of the shadow and the corner of the window. The cube like buildings don’t quite fit with the tower like structure with bricked in windows and false looking wall, both of which seem to be from another, more lavish time. I like the incongruous feeling of the scene in combination with the clarity of a strong mid day sun and light. Terrific as usual…

Well found photograph! Lots of shapes on display here. Another visual treat.

I like your selection today for the range of blacks and whites that it offers. Fine viewpoint and resultant
composition. Your usual, and excellent black and white work, complete the image.

I love the way the light bounces around this image, the TMax has amazing quality in both the highlights & shadows, superb image Grant.

I love the multiple levels, colors, and textures in this building. Nicely done.

Well seen and, as always, beautifully presented.

i wish it could be spring indeed !!!
nice play of different volumes .

The brickwork is well defined, even along the floor by the container, and although the shadow seems to be quite light, the daylight is harsh by comparison. Super.

and isn't it lovely, spring in america?

The pole on the left closes the open-form nicely. Unexpected surprise.

Ah-ha, hidden behind a fortress is the spring store. Cool find.

a sad image in contrast with the spring label - very clever

Squares everywhere! Excellent composition.

Impressive and desolate structures. Seems the scenery of a gangsters film.
Nice volumes out of these B&W tones, fine one !
