Shades of Decay

“The Grin” – © chriscondello 2013 – Tennis Way – Wilkinsburg, PA – Everything we build… Requires maintenance… Our defenses against nature… Are eventually claimed by nature… This garage is nothing more than a façade at this point… What you see… Is all that is left…

I have prints available to purchase here – www.society6.com/chriscondello – Or you can contact me directly at c.condello@hotmail.com for commissions or locally/personally produced prints…

“Shades of Decay” – © chriscondello 2013 – Tennis Way – Wilkinsburg, PA – Even the materials that we consider impervious… Have a life span… Everything decays… Sometimes we try to cover it up… Hide it… But even our fixes have a lifespan…

“Blue Fade” – © chriscondello 2013 – Tennis Way – Wilkinsburg, PA – Blue tarp is a common roofing material here in Wilkinsburg… Many of the garages have not been maintained… And covering them with a tarp seems to be the preferred solution…

“River Run” – © chriscondello 2013 – Tennis Way – Wilkinsburg, PA – Concrete is a constant in my neighborhood… One cannot wander far without walking across tons of the stuff… Jagged and broken… Stained and aged… When I saw the smooth river stones on the side of the alley… I was taken back by the contrast of the two… I can see this becoming a future subject…

“Complimentary Decay” – © chriscondello 2013 – Tennis Way – Wilkinsburg, PA – Cold blue sheet metal… Warm earthy paint… This garage was not built by a craftsman… That’s for sure… But it is being destroyed by one…

“Urban Ant Hill” – © chriscondello 2013 – Tennis Way – Wilkinsburg, PA – This is one of those… Depends how you look at it photographs… One could say… These ants are constructing a home… This is not decay… Or you could say the ants are excavating the road bed material… I think I will let you be the judge… Either way… It makes for a colorful mound…
