Vessels of Decay

There is a beautiful melancholy as old buildings fade in to the ground.

These abandoned ruins used to be homes; places of shelter and protection.  Now, there is a tragic and funereal atmosphere, as they fade – slowly dissolving in to the earth.

But, at the same time, there’s something beautiful about the manner of this decay – as the natural materials that formed the walls are ever so slowly consumed by the land that produced them.
