the beauty found in the abandoned
My friend Alan and I found a very interesting abandoned building in his neighborhood. It was a warehouse of some kind that must have experienced a fire and subsequently vacated. It has become overgrown with vines and trees have taken root in its interior. I find the juxtaposition of factory and forest, hardware and nature quite lovely.

What if you were to leave your place of work exactly how it is right now, not come back for 20 years, and find it overgrown with vegetation, windows broken, and open for tiny critters to build their home? I think my art room at school would look magnificent this way.
