beautiful urban decay in nicaragua

these pictures were taken in the cities of granada & leon, nicaragua. both were colonial outposts for the spanish - thus the incredible architecture. over the centuries the buildings have been blasted with bright color. i was delighted by the chipping paint revealing a bit about each building's history. that's what i love about these old cities - they allow this urban decay to happen. although unintentional due to war and poverty, its just so beautiful and preciously unique.
