Weekend Photo Theme is a weekly photography article where either Dale or Franca will choose a theme, select 5 pictures to sum that theme up & tie them together with their interests of Architecture, Art, Design & Travel.

Just recently I was discussing with a fellow blogger about mine & Franca’s love for Architecture and that, as we travel, we come across run down buildings & ruins of former great and grand buildings. Even walking past empty shop fronts in my own town, I’ve always felt that there was so much space going to waste. First, no tenants. Second, no income. Third, neglect. It’s a shame that we’re expecting to see no matter which direction we go.

Personally, I’d like to open each one of them up, these buildings included.
