CDP theme day - "rust and ruin"


The first of every month is theme day for the City Daily Photo bloggers. In Amboise, this building is a little rusty and faded, but it's not really ruined as there is still a working carpenter's shop here.  In any case, I find it makes an interesting collage of muted color and texture. Click here to see how the other bloggers interpreted today's theme.

  1. I wouldn't have guessed that a carpenter still works there.

  2. How interesting that this building is still in use! I would hae assumed it's vacant.

  9. I like it too. It's faded, but it still feels like there's a working place within.
