Photographer's Note

I wanted to express a particular feeling with this submission, and talk about abandonment in plain sight in a busy city like Santo Domingo. This clock tower and the boulevard that contains it resides in the middle of one of the busiest avenues in the city, and yet, it is abandoned to any practical uses. You can see garbage on the floor, the flowers are not being taken care of and the clock itself has been broken for nearly 20 years.

The whole concept of the boulevard is questionable, as there are no parking spots nearby. At the beginning of operations, there were some bars and a small amphitheater. But the practical uses were gone too quickly and everything you see is decaying rapidly at everyone's sight. Flags are new, tho. After all, we just celebrated the DR Independence.
