Abandoned



This little building used to be where a parking attendant sat guarding a private parking lot near the Florida State University campus. The university built a new 5 story parking garage directly across the street and put this enterprise out of business a few years ago. It looks a little lonely doesn't it? I like the ferns growing out of the roof.

I can so see this repainted and repurposed in a garden...I like the ferns too!

It's a pity that business are not good well for them.
Looks abandoned indeed.
Hugs and bon dimanche!

It does look a little sad and bedraggled. MB

Oooooh, I LIKE what Darla said about this cute little shack being repurposed for a garden! I can so totally see that!!!

Of course at first I thought it was a quaint little boarded up outhouse. I'm so glad you explained what it used to be!!!

At first I thought it might be a fancy outhouse! Rather forlorn looking for sure. I guess it's called "progress," but that doesn't mean it's necessarily good.

Have a great week, Lois!

That's a pitiful sight. Although, the rooftop ferns add a certain je ne sais quoi.

Aaaawwww...wow--I don't think I've ever seen an abandoned car lot cage before! This is a wonderful photo. lol

At first look I thought it was an abandoned outhouse. (grin)

I was thinking exactly what Darla said, wouldn't that make the neatest garden shed? Love the ferns growing out of the roof. One thing about Tallahassee, you could plant a popsicle stick and it would probably grow LOL Kat

I remember when there were houses there on that corner. I lived in one for awhile. Now THAT was a long time ago.

LOL, like Jacob, I thought it was an outhouse too. ;)

I actually hope nature takes back the entire place, not just the little building. Would be nice to see her break up the remaining concrete.

It must of been quite stuffy in there during the summer. I like the color though :-D

It seems simple enough to take it apart - I wonder why they don't
