There is a small building attached to the back ... I think at one time this was used as a small flower/florist's shop.

What a eccentric little structure! The sense of abandonment here is more of the person who built it than the structure itself. Nice perspective and sun flare.

Probably the most unique building in this challenge! The sun flare is a nice touch. The framing is a little crowded on the left, and the ramshackle building on the right pulls the eye from the subject building, but there probably wasn't much you could do about that. Good effort to capture this most unusual building.
