The rusty charm of the broken stuff

There are plenty of pretty photos at DT: Monumental buildings, nice flowers, delicious tomatoes, lovely landscapes, cute dogs "smiling" into the camera...

But what about the old destroyed stuff? Everything which exists will be dismantled or will get broken - it's just a matter of time. Photos of demolished things are not pretty, but they show something which many people eliminate from their memories: The transient nature of our world.

Such photos have a harsh charm of their own. And the broken house against the blue sky was my first sale at DT nearly two years ago.

Photographers always seem to have a soft spot of rust and decay. All that detail and history I suppose. Just don't know if it translates to sales as much as the shiny and new.

I love urban decay images! I'm not sure how well they sell here, but they have a beauty all their own and I have always been a fan of this genre. Glad to see someone else out there loves it too. :)

This is a very important debate to learn every aspect of reality can produce a nice picture ... especially when the reality is temporary and fading,

Everything is transitory, photography for me is something magical! A greeting my friend!
