A very sad feeling to this well framed shot Ralph! A terrible sight to see someone's place of worship desecrated! ;-)

Powerfully eloquent. The architect and builders would be horrified to see what time and circumstance can do.

Oh, what a lovely building to see it deteriorating and being vandalized! Sad. :(

A great photo Ralph, composition & clarity are perfect. It's sad that this magnificent structure has to be a victim of vandalism and abuse. It must have been beautiful in its day.

What an aptly-titled photo. But what a shame.....it looks like it was quite a church at one time. Great textures captured here.
