I live in Baltimore, an old town in decay and reconstruction since it was founded. I love photographing the human environment, especially buildings with a story. My interests include recycled buildings, graffiti, churches, factories, ghost signs, ruins, jails, towers, corporate buildings, theaters, bridges, stores, houses, cemeteries, schools, apartments, bars, gas stations, to name a few. I like pictures that give a sense of place, and I love to do pictures of places that aren't already on Panoramio. I don't like to do postcard shots; I'll buy the postcard instead.

Avagara's conversations

Apparently a condo project called Masons Square was planned to replace this abandoned Masonic temple, vacant since at least 2007. But it also appears that the project has fallen victim to the real estate market crash.

Preston , like many other british towns and cities , is going through extensive redevelopment. Houses which fall well below modern standards are demolished and the population relocated leaving churches with no congregation. I suppose saving the facade is better than saving nothing at all.

Land values in city centres are now too high for most housing development. Also , unlike previous centuries people no longer need to live close to their place of work so the trend is for new houses to be built in satellite towns.

Thank you for that, Avagara.

I rather liked his Dirty Shame, though. Thanks!

Yes, coming into O'Hare Airport. I did the identification of the buildings later.

Thank you for your correction, I have changed the name :)

The ones that grow in the Mojave desert have more foliage, for some reason.

Thanks for the interest. They are things we take for granted, but they won't be here forever.
