Forlorn corner

This is a lost corner in peripheral Montevideo (Coronel Raiz St. and Batlle & Ordoñez Boulevard). The weeds have grown high. The current election campaign has helped aesthetics, by painting white a section of the old brick wall.

I doubt this corner was any different 50 years ago.

Lost corner


  1. Along with the other picture elements, the deep perspective nicely conveys the idea of the passage of time. I don't recall seeing it used in quite that way before.

  2. The VUSW does a good job of perspective - good point about the parallel with time, completely unintentional.
