366 Project - Day 332 - "Abstract (Neglected and Exposed)"

November 27, 2016 - "Abstract (Neglected and Exposed)"

Walking around just a small portion of downtown Danbury this afternoon, and it amazes me how much of the town has become either neglected or completely abandoned. Once thriving restaurants, nightclubs, bars and stores sit empty. Even buildings that do still provide a home for businesses are falling into disrepair.

Gone is the art and music scene that once blossomed here. Only the ghosts of the past remain... and if you sit quietly you can almost hear their voices echo in the alleyways.

The shiny finishes of the past are crumbling away... exposing the indifference of our community (or, rather, our "lack of community").

It is a sad scene.
