I thought some of you might be interested in a thread that records our industrial and commercial legacy - faded structures that may never have been intended to be anything other than utilitarian. Some of the buildings I have shot are no longer standing, so it can also be a record of the past.

This one was demolished just last week:



A few more already on my flickr account and previously posted elsewhere:







I'll see what the response is like and search my file\s for some more. Looking forward to your contributions!
Very nice

Either your lens has very strange distortion, or the building is sagging in the middle (at least!)

I'm sure with a bit of post processing we could make most of these buildings look like new again!

You should get a job with an estate agent (or do they call them realtors there?).

That, or "agent of record", whatever - coming from UK I never understood this "real estate", "real property" thing. No gazumping here though.

From my Commercial Principles & Practice subject in year 11 at high school (about 60 years ago) it was to differentiate between property that was permanent (real) and what could be carried around, lost, worn, etc. The law of contract placed different conditions on the disposal of the different classes of property; real property required written contracts, other stuff could be sold/given if merely evidenced in writing or even just by exchange for some value (quid pro quo).
