I am experimenting Smile

I'm also going through some of my older files. This was taken at the historic San Gabriel Motel, which now has been razed and a behemoth eye-sore of a condominium complex has been raised in it's place. "Progress" is not kind.

Thanks for looking.

Special thanks to Moira, Walter and Lillian for their UAs on my image Woman's Work is Never Done.

Special thanks also to Dave (Dave87) for his UA on the image Outed.

You have a wonderfully individual eye. A lot of people would photograph the cat, a few would see the shadow; but how many would balance them with that bunch of leaves?
So very sad to think that this has gone. I hope that someone gave that bench a good home. And the cat.

I'm thinking the low shadows on this are giving it that "coming to an end" feel ...or maybe it was just your description that put it in mind. either way it is a fine image.

Soo glad you got this fine shot before the building was razed Anne, we've had two fine historic buildings demolished around here recently, which is a terrible shame as we have such a dearth of such in the first place!
