Silhouettes In Front Of Billboard Architecture

Silhouettes in front of shutter

Two silhouettes were passing by in front of the shuttered store

Shot in the city of Asakusabashi, Tokyo. I found an old fashioned store during rambling along. Its wall was stone-built. Yet it seemed to get out of business long before. No signboards were hung on the wall and the shutter was closed tightly. This type of architectures is called 'Billboard architecture' and it was once a major architectural style in the urban location. These architectures are becoming uncommon in the spirit of the time. Because this building was closed already, it might be demolished in the near future.

During watching the facade, many people were coming and going in front of the shop. Nobody didn't take account of this small building. The silhouettes in this photo were just passing each other in front of the shutter.
