Heart Reflections


The abandoned church across the street is "abandoned" no longer. It has been purchased by a demolitions and dismantling company whose workers are hard at work reducing the main building to bare walls.

After the carpet was removed and most of the garbage scraped away, the water from the leaking roof started forming large pools throughout the building.

One of these pools of water had a dry spot in the center ... in the shape of a heart!

To see reflections from around the world, visit James at Newtown Area Photo, and join us for Weekend Reflections.

How poignant. This is a beautiful, poignant photo.

I hope they are thinking of making use of this uniquely magnificent structure. It would be heart breaking if they tore it all down.

This was so very well spotted! There is beauty in a demolished place also, only if you have that vision.

And thank you so much for your nice words with regard to my Contest Winner and Felicitation of Bhavesh Chhatbar at Olympus India's Nariman Point Office posts. I'm delighted!

I think it will be fun to compare the abandoned years to what they will do. I'm so excited to see someone taking care of the place. I just hope they don't decide to tear it all down.

That would be a shame.

I LOVE this heart--it is so perfect, I had to come back and take another look.
