Weekly Photo Challenge: Saturated

Window, Eaux-Vives, Geneva

My shot for this week’s photo challenge was taken in my own neighbourhood of Geneva, about 5 minutes from my front door. There are a diverse range of buildings in the Eaux-Vives area, but I think this is probably the most interesting just because it feels a bit out of place. Seemingly abandoned and since adopted by some of Geneva’s homeless, it makes for some intriguing shots.

This window represents the building perfectly. With no glass and one shutter missing, I hate to think how cold it must be in the winter time. I love the saturation of the pink towel left out to dry and its contrast against the drab, unkept building. What do you think? Do you have any buildings in your neighbourhood that have been adopted by the homeless?

    Urban decay is always a very interesting topic. Once, a building in our neighborhood was being occupied by some activists as the building was to be torn down. They almost took the house apart by themselves, but I did not take any pictures of it for some reasons…
    Great picture!
    Cheers,
    Charlie

      Thanks Charlie! I agree urban decay is really interesting and makes for some great subject matter. Shame about the pictures, maybe next time! Thanks for stopping by.
