  1. Mike, I have to tell you, it looks like a wall/door to a defunked bank in a deserted shopping mall around here. Every time I see that door, it amazes me that banks go bankrupt…that towns disappear… that shadows and sand and emptiness stare at us from walls bricked up … there’s nothing behind the one here… and probably nothing behind the one there… yet odd to say someone felt it necessary to brick up the emptiness… πŸ™‚

    • abandoned homes and buildings littering America. Many countries actually. Bricks that close a door don’t tell of families destroyed. Hungry children, lost souls. and full prisons. Schools closing, church bells ringing, marching bands that can’t afford instruments. Oh I wish I had a river, I could skate away on.

      • Yea, bricking up the emptiness… perhaps bricking up all the tears falling … but I have a feeling even the tears have dried and blown away….

  2. Funny you should use the word well in your post …..not because it is a funny word but that water is the reason there is a well. Notice the bricks, both the ones of the original structure and the ones that came later, have a point where they faded into a zone of sameness: only water mixed with time can blend the old and new together.
    This place has been flooded a time or two but has the look of a desert. I too have the look of the desert but have had the healing floods come upon me a time or two. Nice pic man!

    • I have looked at those bricks and notice that the ones on the bottom do seem washed out. I thought perhaps they get more sunlight, but water is in the mix as well. Thank you Jagged Man.

      • No gutters on the building maybe? The water splashing up on the wall and then the sun coming out could faded it as such.
