Brilliant shot Ginnie! The treatment is excellent. Have a happy Monday. smile
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Frances. Happy Monday, indeed. smile
That certainly is beautiful decay.
Ginnie Hart: We saw a lot of it around Budapest, Michael. Thanks.
You have such a great eye for this kind of thing!!
I'll have a HAPPY Monday!! 15 minute commute.... whoop whoop!!
I hope you and Astid have a lovely week!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you very much, Elizabeth. And YAY for an easier commute for you. You're gonna love it!

Another of your excellent, interesting walls, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Lisl. We saw a lot of "interesting walls" all over Europe during our river cruise! smile

Looks like the fesztival is over Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Since this was at the end of March (Easter Sunday), yes, Chris. It was also freezing cold. I wonder if the festival time is now on the island? I hope so. It appeared very abandoned back then.
Looks like they rather gave up halfway grin
Ginnie Hart: This was still during the freezing-cold time of the year, Bill, and everything was abandoned that day. It gave the feeling it would never be restored...but hopefully it's alive and well as we speak.

So,e times Ginnir, the run down look is enjoyable.
Ginnie Hart: We photographers do seem drawn like magnets to the rust and decay, Chad...you're right! smile

Great shot and I hope they swept a broom through this place before the festival, that ends today.
What a coincident. http://www.szigetfest.co.uk/
A neighbour's grandson played there, with his band http://www.kinkobra.com/
Ginnie Hart: OMG! Talk about a koinky-dink! I'm glad to see the place did come back to life! Thanks for the links, MLMA!

Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Helys. I love those two windows. smile

Beau rendu des textures
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, Marie. Merci.

Ah. It has seen better days by the look of it. I like the textures are colous in the bricks. Another Hungarian word; so I just put aZ in somewhere? Photozgraphers?
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Alan. And, yes, just add a zed and you'll be deemed Hungarian! smile

Peeling back the layers ... lovely
Ginnie Hart: Waiting for a photographer to come along, Richard. smile Thanks.
Art, in decay,Ginnie,very good.
Ginnie Hart: The kind we all like, Frank! Thanks.
I really like the combination of colours in this pictures. You've noticed it very well I think. smile
Ginnie Hart: That's very kind, Diana. Thank you.
Great shot Ginnie! It looks like they were trying, but got ripped off grin
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, at the end of freezing March, no one was thinking about a festival, Martin. Believe it or not, today was the last day of this summer's fest! Astrid found the link: http://www.szigetfest.co.uk/

Fascinating and artistic wall, I love it!
Ginnie Hart: What is it about decay that we're drawn to, Ruth??? Thanks.
What? No chocolate eggs?
Did you feel extra hungry in Hungary on Easter Sunday? wink
Ginnie Hart: HA! Not one chocolate egg to be found, LC. Come to think of it, after walking the full length of the island that day, we were very hungry and had a nice bite to eat in the restaurant/café before exiting the island! How did you know? smile
Lots of lovely urban decay there Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Something every photographer loves, Brian, right? smile Thanks.

These are the most color-filled 'blues' I've ever seen - smile! Happy Monday!
Ginnie Hart: We're gluttons for these, Marcie, aren't we! smile Thanks.

Nicely composed image illustrating delightful decay with mix of textures and surfaces
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, George.
I don't know how you manage to make derelict & decaying scenes like this look interesting, Ginnie, but somehow you always do.
Ginnie Hart: You're always so kind and up-building, Beverly. Thank you.
You can find a shot where the rest of us might struggle
Ginnie Hart: You'd see this for sure, Martin, if you were there, but thanks!

You have done an Astrid on the building. I like this shot.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Louis, you're right. HA! Thanks.
A very photogenic old wall Ginnie. The island looks like a fascinating place
Ginnie Hart: What a photo op, Janet. You'd love the island, which is much more alive now than it was back at the end of March, I'm sure! Thanks.
Lovely bit of urban decay Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.

This looks kind of sad ... how long ago was the jazz festival? Although, have to admit, the colours look great ... almost Fall-like.
Ginnie Hart: I'm guessing this was the remains from last year's festival, Emily, still up at the end of March. Today was the last day of this year's festival, so I assume everything was spruced up. Thanks.
What a great moody wall > for a Blue Monday.
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Jacquelyn. Thanks.

Really good processing on this. I was so busy yesterday didn't even get to look at SC
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Aussie. Sometimes our real life just has to take precedence! That's all there is to it. HA!
There's a lot of decay in this picture. Why do we hate decay, but love in in photos like this?
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Sheila. The seduction of photography! smile Thanks.
Great shotsmile Greetings
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, Zielona.
So many angles and layers, really well composed
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, Will.

seems like the festival's over.. smile i like the natural division caused by the tear in the sign though.. nice shot!
Ginnie Hart: This was from last year (picture taken in March), Rian, and quite coincidentally, I posted this on the last day of THIS year's festival. I'm sure the poster there now is much more fresh than this one. smile
Oh my...the decay in this is so beautiful! Love!
Ginnie Hart: We photographers gravitate to it, don't we! smile Thanks, dear Robin.
