Amazing how a rather untidy area can be turned into a fine photograph. I do like the way that yellow jacket stands out John.

It's a place I'd love to know more about, John. I do like how you have shown the breadth of this and the failed potential.
I suppose eventually they will have to do something with this site. In the meantime it has made for a fine picture
A great shot John!
Great urban landscape John!
Great shot, John, especially like the jacket and lifebelt.
beautiful blue hour shot. nice choice of location
