Another abandoned home

A former home now left to disintegrate and eventually collapse into the ground. I often wonder about the circumstances that forced owners to pass on renovation and decide to left the old place to decay.

I bet someone was thrilled with this home when it was now. Now it is just a "house" and a sad one at that.

Excellently composed. I like the framing with the bushes. I, too, often wonder when I see abandoned houses like this.

Oh, my, looks like it's about to cave in. I wonder what the history of the home is? I always wonder stuff like that when I see old, abandoned homes.

A superb find Don. I often wonder when I see these old buildings, just why they are now abandoned. They must all have a story to tell.

It does make you wonder. Maybe, someone decided it wasn't worth remodeling and walked away. A cool shot in any case.

A very sad scene. I too always wonder what happened to the occupants. I like the hills and landscape in the background.

Excellent old ruin, Don. I like the way the shrubs and trees loom over it like buzzards on road kill.
