An ode to abandoned downtown {Photographer Michael Tortorich}

February 04, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

There is a haunting quality about an abandoned downtown.

It reminds us of who we once were.

By no fault of its own, it's been left vacant.

People move on. They find greener pastures (or so they think). They find new places, and new opportunities.

New places are fresh. New places are clean.

New places represent a new start.

Don't overlook the old.

It's not simply depleted. It's not a relic, nor is it useless.

It reminds us of who we once were.

It's rust is beautiful.

It's not a flaw.

It reminds us of who we once were.

It's flaws give it character.

It's damage doesn't make it wrong.

It reminds us of who we once were.

All that glitters is not gold.

There is beauty in the ugliness of all that we regard as refuse.

It reminds us of who we once were.
