It is always the broken bits that get my attention, Charles. Your processing seems to highlight the crumbling and decay, and gives it a kind of beauty.

I wonder if any of the crumbling concrete has dented the heads of passers-by.
buildings seen better days but still full of colour
Nice shot Charles. Captures a lot of details and small things which otherwise get unnoticed !
Beauty observed and presented in a most unlikely subject Charles! Well done!

Very well spotted, it looks very solid.

It clearly has been around for awhile, Charles! The colors almost remind me of Italian shots I've seen along the Mediterranean.
I like the crop here

where does India get so much colour and form, even the decaying stuff looks like the acrylic paint fairy has done another lap. Much to look at here Charles, very good
Wonderful colour, Charles - I do like shots of dilapidated glory smile

I like the matching curtains! Very homey. I'd spend time reading on that balcony.
Nice colors!
