Cosmic Photo Challenge: Architecture Digestif

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Architecture Digestif.

A couple of shots of buildings on High Street in Southampton, Ontario, Canada showing the variety of building and architectural styles found in many small Canadian towns.

Another small town in Ontario, Canada. This is the old grocery store in Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula. Replaced by a new store on the other side of the town it’s been standing empty for years becoming a bigger eyesore by the month. You would think a town trying to attract more tourists would do something about it.

  1. You’re right about the contrasting differences. I like it. It reminds me of a documentary I saw recently on abandoned retail spaces and shopping malls. There’s great beauty in it, but a bit of sadness too. Well done.

    1. Thank you. There’s been a variety of rumours about what’s going to happen to the old grocery store but it continues to decay. The roof was leaking badly when it was still a grocery store so it’s probably really bad inside now.

    1. There’s been various rumours about the future of the grocery store but as the roof was leaking badly when it was still in use it may not be salvageable by now.

      1. I’m just wondering how much mold there may be growing everywhere with the roof leaking all this time. This area seems to be bad for the growth of mold, probably because of the high humidity being on a peninsula between two large bodies of water.
