Urban Blight Winners

2017-05-18 5

Here's what the jury has to say about this photo:

The soft light passing through the graffiti-ed window pane lends a peaceful atmosphere to this abandoned space---a stark contrast to its disarrayed displays. One cannot help but wonder if the former occupants of this building basked in that same golden sunshine.
