@Matt Sutton: thanks very much matt
I like the distance you've taken it from so that the sky and the foreground enhance the shot as well.

The two houses seem downright snuggle together. I agree with Lisa, the free space in front of the buildings and the high sky above them makes the photo. Great images!

very nice cityscape

Very desolate. The concrete is wall to wall with no room for things of beauty. No wonder you felt as if you could feel/breathe the air around my meadow flowers.

@Rachael: sometimes i find these places beautiful too.
Une belle atmosphère urbaine et désertique.

Your empty spaces are always more empty and the silence more silent - Your ability to capture that I find remarkable.

@daina: thank you very much daina
Gives me a "dark" feeling but that also mean that it is a great picture!

Is the economy doing this or are you purposely seeking out abandoned structures. Don't get me wrong, you know I like abandoned structures, but I'm curious too. Love it in greyscale...nice composition.

PS...the reason I asked is I saw my home town of Dayton, Ohio in the top 10 cities of decline or some such title. All of the industry has left taking the jobs with them.

@sherri: sherri - i don't mind the question at all. but, actually, these buildings aren't abandoned. i just tend to show up an unpopular times - saturday and sunday afternoons.
Surreal! This downtown is kinda empty.

The Big Picture... this is great getting a bigger view.

@Observing: thanks mike
Since I find shooting buildings to be threatening, I never cease to be amazed at the beauty and quality of your work. Great photo!

@Bill: thanks bill. your landscapes are amazing. i guess we all have our preferred subjects. i do like buildings.
Did you wait in long time till people disappeared from there? This is great expression. I really love this image.

@Makoto: no, no wait at all - typical sunday...
Great space in the foreground! Seems like a ghost town, voices and footsteps echo.

super. agree with above...silence, desolation, eeriness...all perfectly captured.

really nice composition here and fantastic tones. i love the sense of desolation.

Looks almost post-apocalyptic.

@Twelvebit: it has that feel on an empty sunday
the relationships of objects and space in your photos always keeps me on the edge of my proverbial 'seat' -- wonderfully done here mate -- my favorite parks of course: the arched tire track marks and that wonderful sky!
