broken windows in building

Different Opinions

Each of these windows has something different to say about the condition of this building.

I’ve been watching the Thepitt Building in Carnegie slowly fall to pieces for years. The brick walls are sound for the most part, but each of the classic old 6/6 wooden-frame double-hung windows has weathered the time in its own fashion, from broken panes to missing panes to those remaining reflecting its own little section of the sky, some windows with dilapidated blinds still hanging and others with chairs and desks visible and even views of the sky through the roof, or where the roof should be. It’s just fantastic in its downfall, though only a few years ago there were still businesses in this building.

Interesting how different it looks in color, less stark, possibly more details, yet it’s the same message.

    • Betsy, you’re so wonderful! When you are sharing a post as you did the copyright comes with it because people have to click on the link to see the image or read, It’s only when you pull something out of a post, like the poem you copied and pasted to make sure people read it, and it doesn’t link back to the original that you need to add the copyright. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Interesting shot – much more effective in black and white. Something about urban decay – a metaphor for the last part of a person’s life?

    Thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks! I like those “urban decay” shots in BW too, but there was something about that bright red that is for the most part intact that defined the windows so well. when in doubt, share both.
