Abandoned





The weather was beautiful this past weekend and I took a long walk on several of the trails at a new park that just opened near my house. I almost missed seeing this abandoned house in the woods, but fortunately looked over in time to get a few pictures.

Linking to Our World Tuesday and Tuesday's Treasures.

It is almost invisible, gone up into the woods. Spooky view.

Goodness! Well spotted Lois, this poor old abandoned building is so well camouflaged! Scenes like this always make me wonder what the story is, there has to be one! Beautifully captured.

I wonder sometimes how long it would take the woods to take over my house if it were abandoned. That one is almost invisible. Let us know what it looks like in a year or more.

Great shots of this place. It looks like nature is about to consume it.

I love these shots! One of my favorite photographic activities is to find such abandoned places and photograph them. Wishing you a great Tuesday!

I always wonder how thinks I mean homes and such could be just abandoned----I mean somebody somewhere still owns them don't they?

One wonders how long it can last.

Lois, this is right up my alley. Natures has a way of reclaiming what man makes and abandons. Thanks for sharing and I look forward to more treasures from Florida.

How easy it would have been to miss this old building - if only the walls could talk.

Up here in our COLD neck of the woods we have lots of these old places consumed by the briars and the brambles. I am always afraid to get too close to them when we are out walking and hiking because of my fear of old hidden wells. This one is a great one. I think it is still standing because it is being held up by the bushes.

This makes me a little sad...

Never knows what might to find in the forest.
Very lovely photos.

Wow that old abandoned home was well camoflauged. I'm glad you spotted and shared it. Sad that it's gone to such disrepair but it has a hauntingly beautiful quality to it now as well.

Rose said...

Oh, I really, really like this!
