Artist's Description

This old building on Central Ave, in St Petersburg, FL, has sat derelict for years; its most recent function was as a nursing home. i took numerous shots of the hollow pink shell, with sunlight shining through from front to back, unobstructed by many interior walls. There was something just so nostalgic about it. This particular, inverted shot has taken on a sort of X-ray negativity. It doesn’t get much attention, but there is still something about it that I like very much.

As it happens, a year or so after taking this series of shots of this abandoned building, now I see that a condominium developer is fixing it up, so hopefully it will live and be beautiful again.

December 2010 update: condo construction done, and units for sale. It looks beautiful, but so much was changed, it is unrecognizable. Will try to get by there soon for a shot.
