Urban Decay, Urban Art

IMG_4789I was up at the Ohioana Library for an excellent Ohioana On The Road today, and as I was leaving I noticed a complex of apparently abandoned industrial buildings that I’d never really noticed before.  No doubt the neighbors see the buildings as a scene of urban blight, and the weeds and broken bottles and debris substantiate that view.  Seeing it with the eyes of a visitor, however, I thought the combination of the weathered exterior, the fading pastel colors, the rust, and the checkerboard effect of the boarded-over windows also gave the buildings a certain beauty.
