Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal – Urban

A fascination with graffiti and architecture combines for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal – Urban.  Talk about the changing face of the city in some circles and you’ll either be met with suspicious glares, get embroiled in a heated discussion about the lack of civic leaders’ adequate foresight or will be pleasantly surprised by the rehabilitation of a down and out neighbourhood.  A vision, conception, the wrangling of red-tape and public consultation,the first scarily destructive steps taken towards revitalization – all these are but part of the protracted birthing pains leading up to the awakening of a unique community. Like a newborn child, the shell of this building only hints at what it could possibly become.

    Wow – great choice for this week’s theme. Urban renewal certainly does spark a discussion, doesn’t it? I love the way you describe the process of revitalization as “protracted birthing pains leading up to the awakening of a unique community”.
