It is sad that I am not sure if I will have a chance to get some pics for this challenge and I work 10 min from a run down part of Fort Worth with tons of abandoned buildings. Maybe at lunch tomorrow I will have a chance but with the week has been my lunch will be short.

Here's my entry for 'Urban Decay' this week. Captured at the intersection of 32nd St/Thunderbird Rd in Phoenix, AZ midday today. Empty parking lot and vacant business spaces. Black and white for doom & gloom effect. Hope things turn around soon and these doors open again.

This is from the old "Germain Amphitheater" north of Columbus, Ohio closed 2007. I hadn't been there in about 3 years and was hoping some of the buildings were still standing, they aren't - just rubble now. Shot from a staircase looking back to the expansive empty parking lot.

No go for me this week. Woke up with a pretty bad corneal abrasion thanks to leaving my contacts in the night before. F me.

Happen to find this gem while on a bike ride today. Didn't have a decent camera with me so I had to take it with my phone. I'm pretty happy with the results.

I took this from the hip while working downtown yesterday. I 100% do not want to demean this man, but to shine light on his situation. To me, the true tragedy of "Urban Decay" is not some run down buildings but the people who are laid off and living in condemned, moldy, holes in the wall in each of our great cities. It's people who pay. It's always about people.

Didn't have my camera today, but I thought this was very fitting for the challenge this week so I captured it with my phone. Especially thought the rusting mailboxes made it special.

I wanted to get some pics of a few old buildings near downtown Fort Worth but time has not been on my side this week. I did manage to notice this building today on the way home from an Easter egg hunt. I happen to have my camera with me since I was taking pics of my son hunting eggs.
No idea what this building ust to be and it has been vacant for several years.

Best I could do near to Davis without going to woodland or Sac or Dixon. I looked around in Davis and only found one other place where there used to be a hazardous chemicals plant or something like that and they tore it down and it hasn't been rebuilt. It would've been perfect but I couldn't get a shot through the trees! Then I checked out the place where they used to do radioactivity tests on Beagles (sick, right?) and they haven't built anything there either but there weren't any signs so it would've just been an empty grass field...not very interesting.
This is a neat concrete bridge spanning Putah Creek out of town a little ways that's hidden by trees so you don't really see it until you're maybe 500ft away, which is pretty crazy! It's absolutely covered in graffiti, earning it the nickname "graffiti bridge." Other than the graffiti (which to me adds more character to it instead of decay), the road's a little pitted but otherwise is in relatively good shape, so it sorta fits "Urban Decay" but kinda doesn't at the same time

Went to my hometown for Easter today and have had this in mind as my subject for the challenge. It is Crussel's Service Station on the corner of Williams Street & Highway 62 in Westville, OK. It was established in 1952. I visited this station many times as a child. I would often stop by on my bicycle to air up my tires and drink a cold soda. It closed sometime in the mid 90's and has been decaying ever since.

A few blocks from the local beach resort there is an abandoned business district lined with shops that have long since closed. I didn't think there would be much to see but after I got out of my truck I spent an hour exploring the area which turned out to be a treasure trove of urban decay.
