Prohibited Decay

Decaying prohibition 1

This wall runs along the perimeter of the army’s Technical Training Center 技訓中心 in Xìnyì District 信義區. I had just finished scoping out the Stanton Club and was on my way to Héxìng Coal Mine 和興炭坑 when the rhythm of cracked paint and weathered concrete caught my eye. Even an admonition as mundane as “no parking” (qǐngwù tíngchē 請勿停車) becomes oddly beautiful in time.
