House of Sorrow

I can never resist an abandoned building.

This house is in the next town over and on a road I hardly ever take, so when I did and saw it I knew I’d have to go back and shoot it.  When I did I had an intense feeling of loss and sorrow.  Judging by the garden out back with all its little markers and organization, and that aqua blue paint, I imagine this was once someone’s pride and joy.  A refuge, now becoming a ruin.  The dead bird really kicked things up a notch.  What a death.

Here are a couple of sample images, but to get the full effect hit the Slideshow on SmugMug.

Hopefully I remember to get back there in summer when everything is blooming…what a lovely contrast that will be.
