  1. I like the contrast of the car and the old architecture. It should be a place in a video game ✨! Fun fact one of my favorites games made very old architecture designs , wanted it to look decayed , so they built everything looking new and then started looking at places like this to see how buildings and structures deteriorate.

    1. This is my favorite photo from our trip!

      You are full of fun and interesting facts, girl lol What do they do then…do some type of time lapse program to make it look like it really deteriorated?

      1. I’m not really sure the exact process , I do remember hearing it was based on a real place , Le Mont Saint Micheal , they just super decayed it to fit the gloomy aesthetic of the game .
        But yeah I think modern or urban ruins are pretty cool . I always wanted to find an abandoned mall or plaza , I’ve seen a few videos of people walking through them and it fascinates me how something fairly recent ( like not as old as a cathedral ) can be run down and decayed. It’s like America’s ruins of a capitalism and materialism lol

      2. I agree about it being fascinating. In fact, I just told Dwight that it seems we’d find some way to use these growing abandoned malls…he suggested a homeless shelter.

        Either way, I know what you mean. We get to see the ruins of capitalism, up close and personal!

      1. You’re welcome. I would’ve never thought about that, but it makes sense when you put it that way. So were there a good amount of English speakers in addition to those that know Spanish?

        Awesome and I followed that blog.

  2. Thank you for sharing your adventure!!… feel like I am actually there…

    Until we meet again..

    May flowers always line your path
    and sunshine light your way,
    May songbirds serenade your
    every step along the way,
    May a rainbow run beside you
    in a sky that’s always blue,
    And may happiness fill your heart
    each day your whole life through.

  3. Fabulous image, Katherin. I see the juxtaposition of old and new. The stones intrigue me – I love the texture and it reminded me of an old watercolor of mine. My painting was of an Irish castle, but I think you’ll see the similarity. The stonework in your photo is beautiful!

    1. Thank you Judy! That’s what I saw when I snapped this photo, too. Your paintings are always captivating 💜 I’ll send you the other ruins from Panamá when I get a minute.

      Also, I had no idea you could copy/paste a photo in these comments!

      1. Thanks, Katherin. I had no idea either about pasting a photo. I just put a link to the picture on my illustration blog. Maybe because it’s a WordPress link it comes up as a picture.
