The Beauty of Decay


When I heard about this month's City Daily Photo theme, I immediately thought of this building.  I have always thought this to be one of the most interesting buildings in town.  I'm guessing it has a lot of good history to share.

  1. Truly beautiful captures, like how the orange-rust color repeats again and again. The many openings make me wonder what purpose this building served in its day.

  2. You’ve made a great Theme Day post. I agree that it looks interesting. Your perspective is super, too.

    If you’d like to see my Theme Day post, it’s up at Portland Oregon Daily Photo on Saturday, June 1. Thanks!

  3. I would never have thought we were in Sierra Madre here. It is so different from the buildings you usually show us. Makes for a wonderful photo for theme day. How's the foot?

  4. Great choice for theme day, as you say there is a story behind all that corrugated iron.

  6. 20 years ago, in that very lot, Mr V worked on a TV pilot with his best bud Chef King Walter. Every time we pass it, he insists on telling me that same dang story.

  7. What an amazing find! So perfect for the day, though I also have a hard time picturing this in your neck of the woods:)

  8. Thank you, everyone, for visiting, and for your nice comments!

    PA, your comment completely cracked me up. I pictured a gentleman excited to reel the story yet again, while the lady considers whether or not to roll her eyes. (...or at least that's how it would be in my life!)

    For those of you who know the area, this cool building is behind a fence in an industrial area, and my camera lens peeked through (but did not trespass!) to get the picture. It's one of those places that is hiding in plain sight, and I didn't notice it for many years. Would love to know what it once was, if anyone can share. I will ask around, too. Lots of locals know the answer, I'm certain.
