This building in North Calcutta (Kolkata) perhaps qualifies as ruined but is not without its own grace and charm.

I have spent many, many hours walking long distances in various parts of Calcutta. Every time I have remembered to look up, not just straight ahead or into the streets, I have been amazed at the magnificent houses from 100 years ago and more, looking like this kind of palaces but far too often being in a very sad state of disrepair. It's a tragedy to see a part of the city's character and cultural heritage slowly dying, so as much as possible should at least be documented by photographers like you. This is a fine and interesting contribution. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful and rustic all at the same time. This one is a relic for sure :)
Its easy to see why you'd want to photograph this.
So much culture so much history here too.

this is a fascinating picture. I like very much how you filled the frame with this intriguing façade, giving it an attractive perspective that, in my opinion, enhances the impact of all the big and small features. It's striking that this qualifies both as a "ruins" and a "daily life" picture. Textures and details have a lot to say to the viewer, the moodiness of the colours and the atmosphere are captivating too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

I did not go further than the third picture in your presentation and you've done a superb shot with soft light and soft, the colors are beautiful.
Well done and thank you for sharing.
I wish you a happy holiday season.

The building has seen better days, but it is very interesting, especially all the details in the wooden(?) panelling and the colored windows. I guess real estate agents would say "it needs a little work". The photo is a bit dark, but that helps give an atmosphere of decay and ruin.

Un bâtiment qui ne manque pas de charme, beaucoup de détails a voir, je trouve très joli les décorations en bois de la façade, une bonne rénovation serais bien nécessaire, dommage de le laisser a l'abandon
