Amazing, amazing another generic store front - did not think it was possible. Love your wonderful series of them...

Another fine composition of an old building. I like the dynamic balance you achieved with your placement of the building relative to the curb etc. Well done.

How you composed the shot- just having 'budget' over the sign- makes me laugh. This place looks indeed very budgety. Good shot Grant.

@Howard F.: yea howard, that's the word. it's a budgety place in a budgety part of town. i like that.
Great old find. I like how the grass is growing in the cracks of asphalt showing the abandonment.

@sherri: thanks sherri.
nice kind of old fashion shop!
a dying out kind of business, and maybe that grass between the cracks might be a bad sign...

This whole place seems cheap..... ;)
Very good shot Grant, not much business by the looks..!

@Observing: mike, it's economical...
I alwaysl ike your framing, by not giving us the 'whole' picture, but making the picture whole.
Great as always.

@bluechameleon: thanks bc. i appreciate that.
Nice old-time processing. Gives the image a sense of timelessness. Love how you've framed this to leave us guessing as to what the other half of 'budget' is.

i agree w/ BC -- your sensibilities for what you include and what you leave out are top notch! a faaabulous shot -- those wires in the corner -- amazing!!!

There is a satellite suburb near us that these photos remind me of. It's got a lot of businesses but there is an unkempt, abandoned look to them. This one here would fit right in, it could have been taken there. I really like the curve off to the left combined with the rectangle of building on the right.

like bluechameleon said, really like how you have composed this showing only halve of the building, and yet the shot is still full of interest, great work

Nicely seen. Very well composed with spot on values.

I doubt I'd even have considered the possiblity of making a photo out of this scene. Just shows I'm still not paying enough attention.

@Twelvebit: i really appreciate the comment (although i think it's too self-critical). this is my favorite kind of photo to take. but sometimes i wonder if i've gone a little crazy spending so much time on these forgotten places.
