Photographer's Note

I came across this decaying façade and it was so lively and contrasted and striking... that I didn't resist the shot. Once I had taken three shots, an old lady who was slowly passing on the pavement said to me: "Mais c'est pas beau, ça!" (="That thing isn't nice!"). I smiled at her trying to find something to say to justify myself. I started mumbling it didn't need to be nice when she quickly said "oui, mais c'est spécial!" (Oh, but it is special!) And she was right, in this rather rich city this is a rather odd vision. What do you think of it?
