On a trip to Rock Lake, we drove past this old shed/house which appears to be on its last legs. I liked its rundown look and the weathered wood textures. This side has no windows, but the doorway made it look like someone's home.

An excellent shot, Don. This is in advanced decay that is verging on the beautiful, going back to the earth in quiet dignity.

It's touching, when you see the damage to houses.caused by the passing times.

Nice portrait of decay. I like the use of the wire to give depth to the shot.

Excellent shot. Good old building - perhaps home for somebody long back. And now in advanced decay. Nice texture of old wood. Well done. :)

That was probably someone's humble, but tidy, home back in its time. Looks like you got to it just in time.

Good you got this one before a strong gust of wind blows it over. The foreground fence is nice framing.

I also like the barbed wire fence in front of it, not a welcoming place. but attractive to shoot.
