    Good Question Steve, My first reaction was Wow! Look at that! I was taking in Locke in General and trying to absorb the history. With that, you can’t escape the sense of things decaying around you. Locke is an amazing place! It is also in danger if they do not get funding to help keep these buildings up. This window, which is on a building that faces the main road but faces the alleyway to the right felt like it spoke to both the history and the decay. What was it originally? Do these dead plants come from outside or are did they grow from inside. Yes, there is mystery here.

    Also, we are used to looking for a subject. It may be without one it just won’t play to a larger audience. For me, though it is more about the feeling it evokes than making sense out of it. Then again, I have the memory and knowledge about where it was taken.

    Wonderfully thoughtful comments, I am very grateful. Seeing through your eyes helps me form my own conclusions and grow. Thank you
