100 abandoned houses


Compelling site... www.100abandonedhouses.com. All abandoned houses, which always intrigue me. Makes me want to know the stories of the people who lived there and how these poor houses came to be in this state. As someone who bought a 1970s condo that was going down this slippery slope I can see how it happens. Houses need constant upkeep, care and love. Last weekend John just finished repainting the last of the dark blue-gray outside trim. We could tell that this is the second time this has been painted. The first would have been when it was new in 1973.

I REALLY like how the photographer shot these photos. It is exactly how I would have. He stood dead center of the buildings. I like the consistency in the look. Interesting and sad all at the same time.
