RUST IN PEACE by thespook RUST IN PEACE by thespook
Taken with my uncle's SD14.

When the old man who lived next door to my grandparents died, a developer bought the property and demolished the house, planning to build a multilevel shop/office building.

One half of the property faces the shopping street, and the other half (that used to have the old man's home on it) faces the residential street. They wanted to use up the whole footprint :/

Long story short, the locals protested (most vocal my uncle), and for two years now nothing much has happened on that site apart from the grass growing. Part of the auto shop that was out the front has survived and is now in a state of urban decay.

When I saw that on the wall, the photo took itself.

here's a Google Street View of the building/property

Have you ever seen any work by ~fahrmboy ? This picture reminded me of something he would do.

Looks great, incredibly sketchy.

Sketchy indeed. I left soon after because the smell of urine was a bit too strong ;p

Times like this it's very good to know more English - an untransletable text which has the best effect in original.
