Weekend in Black and White- 10/17/14: "Rubble"

asks us to post a black and white photo. No spot colors. No sepia. Black and white, only.

On our recent trip to Portland, Maine, we drove on a self-directed lighthouse tour.  The weather was beautiful. We stopped to eat at The Saltwater Grille in South Portland where we could see the city of Portland and the Old Port across Casco Bay.  The Sunset Marina was next to the restaurant, with many expensive-looking boats.

But on the other side of the restaurant, there was a different world. There, dilapidated buildings and piers had transformed into piles of rubble. I'm drawn to those images more than the bright and shiny yachts. And some of them made great black and white shots.

Something about decay tugs at your heart. This is a wonderful image.

Yep, I am totally with you... I would be drawn to the decay far more than the new and shiny
