October 22

These columns stand in front of a building in downtown Kent, Ohio. When I first moved here in 1978, it was the City Bank, but now, after several other incarnations, it is an antique store. The peeling paint on the columns seems well-suited to the merchandise inside!
Nicely aged...great angle...

Oh this shot is sooo great. I love that the paint is falling off....so antique looking.
October 23rd, 2010  
sort of a faded glory thing!

I love the shot but I feel I should object ( in a good way ) to the comparison between antiques and the paint work...my antiques do not look shabby. Me on the other hand, I feel like that paint work some days!

I love the look of aging here.

I was going to say the same thing. It definitely is a very fitting building for the business.

I loved it, you will in many beautiful places.

I love the old, peeling paint. It gives these columns such character. Great composition!

Funny..there are quite a few antique shops in NZ that are now in historic bank buildings. Now instead of character banks just seem to go for the huge glass featureless skyscrapers. wonder if it still has its vault doors.

cool!

Very historic looking and does seem to fit the antique look!

Very appropriate bank picture given what is happening. Peeling grandeur effect is very good.

@farmboy9155 - no offense! I love antiques and many are very well-cared for and preserved, but I like the shabby ones, too, that look worn with years of use and love. These pillars fall into that category...!

@palusami - it DOES still have the vault inside!

Great capture. The peeling paint makes it, doesn't it?

great composition with the close up of one and the other in the background. Such character and stories contained in thise columns. I like well-used items that tell the story of lives that have touched them.

I love how the paint is peeling ....to me this really enhances the appeal.

I do love the look of old weathered structures. Did the owner keep it like this deliberately or is it benign neglect?

Nice shot! Reminds me of some of the big columns around the University here.

The perspective rocks.

Interesting angle :)
