CDP Theme Day: The Beauty of Decay


Theme Day has come again to City Daily Photo, and this month's theme is "The Beauty of Decay." I found this old doorway and mailbox on the side of an unused building. To see more of this month's theme all around the world click here.

There really sometimes is beauty in decaying buildings isn't there. It's as if they tell a story. I hope you have a great weekend Randy!

Nice composition and the colors are wonderful even in the midst of decay.

Aging gracefully. Some would call this patina. Wonderful shot!

Judy said...

Perfect! It is in a state of decay and it's also beautiful.

You can't often call decay beautiful Randy, but this is..it's like a piece of rustic artwork.

This is the sort of faded paint upon wood that is all the rage at the moment, Randy. Such gorgeous patina.

Thank you for your contribution to Theme Day.
