Beauty in Decay!

I think that there is beauty in decay. There is just a certain something about end of things, whether the thing is natural or manmade.

The toadstools and mushrooms which thrive on this process. All have a beauty of their own. So to do manmade things.

This was the book given to me last week. I am not permitted to show pictures from the inside, but wouldn’t you just to love to explore this building. It is a wonderful book by the way. The pictures are stunning.

In Greece beauty is all around. The island fishing harbours , the countryside, the food, the churches. Spoilt for choice really. However, I also love the abandoned , and have as much pleasure in taking these photographs as taking the pretty ones. See if you agree that there is beauty in manmade decay.
