Amazing! I never realize such a place actually existed. I find this image rather fascinating with the building that appears to be crumbling, and the deep cracks in the pavement. As always...so good!

lots to see here, the trailing ivy, the cracked road, the overflowing pipe, the car peeping into view...the desolate run down feel really starts to come through. Great work.

@rhys: thanks rhys
Agree with above. Not the most inviting mood. Hope this is one service I never ever need.

What a beautiful and interesting building- brick, vines, two-tone paint job, and cracked concrete. I'll bet it looks extremely unsightly in color, but this building is quite nice in b/w. Nice shot.

Parking in the rear apparently . . . I love the boxy white shapes and the wonderful shade patterns. I can only wonder what it looks like inside!

PS: Are you going to suggest they put this shot on their website? Makes them look pretty artistic and might be good for business! :-)

@GJC: i think their clients have more immediate, practical concern...but i'll check :-)
I've never seen these businesses advertised in australia..I don't think we actually have them at all. I like what GJC said, I think that's a great idea :)

@lisa v: alright lisa, i get it...so you've never had to make bail...whatever you say...
Now there's a place we all hope we'll never need:-) Neat old building...love the vines all over the one side.

Considering its purpose I like how the building has only one window on either floor and how (because of the wide angle) it leans slightly into the adjacent building. Wonderful framing...

i especially love the sign on the side eaten by the ivy.
18 Nov 2008 3:11pm
ops! no wire or pole!! ha ha
Like the vines very much, and the different surfaces at the buildings.

@ordinaryimages: never know when it might come in handy jerry...
Looks to me as though Ace Bail Bonds is perfectly situated in the heart of "bail bond country"! A spectacular image. Perfect in B&W.

another stunning capture, so much catches the eye, the bond building the ivy, and looking around for the bounty hunter that must be out on a job :)

I like it! I especially like the broken curbing. Nice job.
19 Nov 2008 3:37am
Hey, Ace - nicely shot. Really fine.

@Stephen Phillips: call whenever you're in trouble!
excellent 'construction' mate, the upward movement of rectangular shapes anchors this shot wonderfully in contrast the the broken diagonal of the curb and the downward movement of the hanging ivy fronds!! i especially like the cracked asphalt and the wonderful shadow-shapes from the window overhang!! marvelous!!

well there was that one time..;)

Fantastic. All the elements are there.

In my opinion they ruined the building facade with that crappy lighted sign, but it's that gauche hunk of plastic that anchors the shot.
19 Nov 2008 11:43pm
That's a fantastic shot Grant, so much detail in the old building, I like it.

@Observing: thanks mike

Nice one. I like the shadows and the windows and the doorway and I find myself drawn to those vines.
