Going Downhill.

I've always loved this old building in Gale St, and it seems the pidgeon's have as well. I wonder if their special tree was chopped down to build it many years ago?

It's very sad to see it going downhill now. Broken windows and blackened walls indicate it is inhabited by people who don't really care about the way they live. It's also clear that those living here don't own the flat, or they'd take far better care of their investment.

Oh... Don't be sad! But I know how you feel, the same is happening in Cascais, with an Hotel that was a reference going down...
