  2. Hm .. Somehow the three last buildings appears to be threatening and brutal (in my eyes) I hope I'm wrong.
    But nice shots.
    Have a wonderful day.

    1. thank you Mormor! maybe it is the starkness of modern architecture that you find intimidating?

  3. I can imagine that crisp, cold winter air and I can see the decay (so sad). Life, as it goes on, isn't always getting better. These shots have a story to tell.
