Escape From Stalag 17

Yes, I escaped to the recycling drop off center on State Street, and this is what I saw from the parking area. The building is currently being used as a warehouse for the Moore Company, but from my viewpoint, it looked like Shawshank prison. Why do I love this view? The starkness of the lines, the white-on-white with blue, the rust trails with graffiti, the stripe of stubborn green.

It does look drab and prison like. Where is that guy from prison break?

Laurie said...

Oh, this is fabulous. I love the starkness, too.

I see a hand breaking through that turf... yes, I think he has a shovel... It's either James Garner or Charles Bronson...

It's no James Garner, It's me making my own Great Escape off the Island. I like the lines of rust too just adding that splash of colour. It' bleak, but the sky make it a hopeful image.
