Textures Of Time

Decaying urban architecture has striking visual appeal. But it is their sense of history that adds to the fascination. The all too familiar stories of prosperity and decline, of the ordinary people that built these derelict spaces, of how they lived and laughed within those crumbling walls, and of the reasons that eventually compelled them to leave. And the haunting memories of our own childhood homes further heighten our empathy for these melancholy relics of a forgotten time.

  1. I was just mesmerized by the slide show Madhu, especially the blue doors. Just think of how many stories passed the threshold…

  2. you knwo that foto of lucknow with blue doors .. reminds me of our old house back in the village we had exactly same well so i think to the door .. and when we renovated we took the doors out and have used them in the new one ..

    lovely pictures all of them

  3. What an eye for beauty you have, Madhu!
    We have been drowning in monsoon rains (highly unusual here!) all day today. But perhaps tomorrow I can be inspired and see through your eyes to the wonder even in old, neglected, “ordinary” structures.

Let me know what you think
