Abandoned House

I liked this abandoned house which was nestled in its surrounding trees. No doubt the house had interesting parts, but the brush inhibited me. I did like the general I view I shot of nature reclaiming the site.

Nice framing of the abandoned house. Wonderful capture of the serene aspect of it in its surrounding trees. Have a nice day. :)

Yes, Nature will soon take back what was Hers all along . . and the whole concept of an 'abandoned house' is so strange to me in a city with a desperate housing shortage and price tags in the $millions !

Places like this must have a story ... a death? No family? No one to reclaim the property? Only questions ... no answers.
Good shot, Don.

Wonderful framing. Lush of grasses covering the house is impressive. Nice capture in beautiful sunlight.

I like how you composed this - with nature swallowing up the old house.

The bird feeder with the missing roof is simply ahead of the house which will share its fate in the end.

It does look a little sad with neglect.

These places have such stories to tell. The grass is taking over. What I saw first was the bird feeder. You could tell that at one time, there was much care that went into their surroundings.

Seems a shame. It looks overrun but not so much that a little TLC wouldn't help.
The door color pops in this image and is almost inviting. :)

I like the window and door peeking through the drooping foliage. The beat-up mailbox is a nice detail.

I'd love to explore that! But it would need a full body suit/ protective gear of some sort. Lovely shot and age in this. I also really like the way the grass takes over the scene.

Beautiful image of this old abandoned house. Yes, Nature's grand cycle is amazing. Great shot. :)

It looks like it was a pretty little house at one time. It doesn't even look that bad from what we can see of it in the photo so I always wonder what happened to cause a house to be abandoned.
