About the Image(s)

This photo was taken while I liven in Costa Rica. It is an abandoned housing project that was just down the road from where I lived. I took this photo from inside another building looking out toward the center courtyard.

I used a flash to project the highlights around the window frame. I was a shame to see this project unfinished, but it was an unfortunate by-product of the 2008 housing crash.

It goes to show the crash affected more than just the United States. There are numerous housing projects in Costa Rica that lost their funding and just lie abandoned.

Love this, Jason! My only comment is, perhaps a wider Flash could have been used, as it looks too much like a post-production vignetted frame. Otherwise, absolutely love how the subject is getting attention, on the clearly, continuing fallout from a struggling economy, that unfortunately seems still to be lingering for everyone around the world.   Posted: 10/12/2021 09:57:37
