Partial Demolition


They say "Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder", I guess that would include unusual places and sometimes in the form of abstraction, a perfect example would be this old furniture factory building on the west side of High Point - North Carolina photographed back in 1981, I must of passed this building a dozen times within a week before enough of the debris was cleared to get a clean shot, it was a partial demolition meaning half of the structure was demolished while the other part of the connected building was still in use. Old sawed off beams and stairwell stubs can be seen protruding from the century old bricks that still hold color schemes of yesteryear and a steel fire door that seals off the divided structure.
This abstract to me was quite unusual not so much because of what it is but for some of the formulas of design "Pattern, Shapes, Textures, Colors and Composition" that could be found within its narrow boundaries.
