Remnants





The rate of demolition in this area of Florianopolis is so rapid that soon all the original buildings will have gone and there will only be the sort of faceless condominiums you can see being constructed in the distance in both these images.

I ought, then, to hurry and record more of these old houses. They aren't of first grade architectural quality, but they do have personality.

Being a foreigner here makes me feel impotant to do anything to stop this process of destruction.
