It's impossible to say why I have such a fascination with abandoned buildings. There's a certain order in decay. At first the building simply looks shabby and ugly, but somewhere down the line it crosses into the realm of decrepit beauty. Peeling paint becomes an abstract pattern and old window caulking hangs draped like icing on a bizarre wedding cake. There's a slight hint of form inside the dark window, suggesting secrets that lie inside.
