This building is boarded up now, but back in the Olden Days of 2014, all I had to do to see this scene was to walk down the alley and look through the broken glass.
The real question here (and it’s one I cannot answer) is why I would have waited 405 weeks between when I made this photo and when I posted it.
That giant, padlocked chain won’t really keep anyone from getting inside, since the glass is all broken. But still, it does perhaps serve as a warning.
But mostly, that feather – all ragged casting its shadow on the door frame….
(Unrelated to the photo, but while I was here, a man pulled into the parking lot. I was pretty sure he was about to invite me to move on along, but what he was actually there to do was to feed the stray cats. After he left, I walked around the end of the building and there were nearly a dozen cats happily dining on food that he’d thoughtfully placed in several places.)

Someone may not understand the implications of the word “executive.” None of the things here – the broken windows; the wonky, old-time Venetian blinds; the awning frame that lacks an awning; those awful benches; and even the weather checked sign conjure up anything that the word generally implies. But maybe someone needs credit for trying?
