The Beauty of Urban Decay...

The Beauty of Urban Decay

A couple of days ago, I took an evening walk and came across this place, which used to be a train repair hangar. That day the sun hung low and it was a breathtakingly beautiful sight to see this industrial building glowing in the golden light.

I didn‘t have the camera with me, so today when the sun came out, I went back there. I‘m still very shy when it comes to „trespassing“ (I had to literally force myself to ignore the big warning sign NO TRESPASSING), but I really, really wanted to capture the beauty of this building, which reminded me of a weathered face beneath the other glitzy city facades.

There was a certain eroded elegance radiating from this neglected spot.

Found out, a furniture store has bought it recently and will turn this into a modern sales store soon. The more reason to enjoy its grungy beauty while its still there.

(BTW... I was „caught“ by three construction workers who were awfully  nice and explained to me the building‘s original function, where everything was and how it worked. They were awesome!)
