This is such a lovely and complete image, perhaps not conventionally pretty, but a fine answer to the challenge.

The shear beauty of industrialisation.

This is a lovely concoction of dirt and light. I'm hanging it in my fantasy art gallery.

Not sure about taking this through a window. It's a different perspective... but I'm not liking the "dirty" appearance.

Interesting and artistic. I guess the title is referring to the window drips?

like a modern mixed-media classic.

-I like where you are going with the gritty, obscured black and whites. You have a way of being able to convey a clarity of message even if the screen is dirty or dripped, or the sensor is dirty or dusty, as you noted on a previous entry. Great stuff.
When I heard the title it reminded me of a song by Son Volt- "Route" the lyrics being-

Standing in the neutral zone
Living on sleep deprivation
The rural route sleeps while the city bleeds all over itself
Over the falls in a barrel is where the answers have gone
And it's now or never, too close to the latter
We're all living proof that nothing lasts
And it's here for now, transient tomorrow
We're all living proof that nothing lasts.

(sorry for the long post.)
