If these walls could talk....

Last Monday I gained legal access to the Toastmaster Cafe with the intention of photographing decades of neglect and nature’s unforgiving resolve.  Upon entry I was overwhelmed with a sense of time— past and present.  Although the interior was recently cleaned and re-arranged, there is a real sense of uninhibited decay.  I intend to make several trips to the cafe throughout the next couple months to record its current state.  Sadly, the café is destined for demolition and it will cease to exist.  These photographs will be a record of its last days.
