She says she glories in being abandoned. –J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan
Earlier this week while out for a drive, I caught a glimpse of an abandoned building I’ve photographed many times over the last several years. I’m always intrigued by how much the building changes, but I was stunned by the beauty of its neighbor [photos #1, 2, 4, 5].
I was pleased to find nature doing what it does–reclaiming what the humans left behind.
I had a difficult time choosing which photos to share for [not-so] #Wordless Wednesday–the originals or the edits. My hubby remarked that color photos tell a story, and the black and white ones are more artsy. Since I can’t decide whether I want to share a story or art, I’m sharing both sets.
Did you ever wonder
Why abandoned houses looked so sad
Much like the people
Their exterior was only for the function
We would not feel so sad
If we recognized
That the spirit of the house
Had already moved on
The dream remained.
Maria Lehtman, The Dreaming Doors
