Worn and Weathered

More images from my downtown trip to the Old Jhb Hospital precinct
This collection of of the worn and weathered - an old door, worn brick and
plaster work and painted down pipes ..... I just adore the brick red colour,
contrast and textures.

 bugweed growing against a weathered wall
bugweed is on the invasive list, but here, it just fits in
so well - tenacious and determined, like the building ....
peeling paint, breaking plaster and still the fine detail of
years gone by stands out....

I agree, it is sad to see old buildings falling apart, but the photo ops are a dream! I love the texture and colour of old bricks.

The old reminds us of the character of those days. Lovely rubies of the past ages.

Sad as it is, these kind of places is a heaven to photographers. And you do you part to create awareness on it as well. Very nice.
