Well composed. The presentation gives a feeling of a postage stamp.

A shop with a sad history

Looks quite homespun and quiet until you check out the detail. Strange feeling to this one.

the unusual angles gives this a good added dynamic, what a colection of signs (and lines)

Without the explanation, and on quick glance it looks like any old downtown grouping. Sad statement of the times, photographed with sensitivity.

Once again your classic toning, this time to supply a slightly sinister air to proceedings. Simple but effective.

Excellent image with tragic story. Probably because the store is not transparent, that attract some bad people.

Great toning here and very well composed. Who'd have thought that such an unassuming shopfront could hide such badness?
