"The secret to living well and longer is: eat half, walk double, laugh triple, and love without measure." ~Tibetan Proverb
one big wind and it looks like it will topple...
I like your first one. I don't think I'd venture in there.
Absolutely agree with Jo, go there on your tiptoes!
I love old buildings like this. Reminds me of happy travels across the desert in Western USA where you see abandon shacks like this frequently. They all must have a story to tell. Cheers, Kate.
That's a magnificent building - I wonder will it be 'rescued' before it crumbles away to nothingness??
I don't think it will stand much longer.
A perfect site for this them. I have many photos of old barns that I've taken in Missouri or Illinois when I've been visiting there but they are much harder to find in the Phoenix area.
that is beautiful.
Well now, that building certainly is in a state of decaying decay.
One big snow storm and this decay will turn to rubble! This is a perfect post for the theme day.
Nice choice for theme day. I hope someone tries to recycle the wood if they can.
I like this kind of photography. So nice place.
Beautiful indeed, it looks like it's been weathering gracefully for a long time. Makes me think of old film stills:)
I like this - you can see the many stages of wood decay in this.
Wonderful portrait of decay.
I'm with Randy, nice choice for this theme indeed.
Going, Going .....!
Oh my! I am so glad you captured this as it may not be standing much longer. Bises,Genie
You’ve made a great Theme Day post. I'm glad you picked these for today.
You got there just in time, Kate. Next wind . . . pfff!
This reminds me of Bodie, Calif., an old mining town maintained by the state of California - as a park - in a state of "arrested decay." It's in an area of great weather extremes and the buildings in the town look much like this one, gamely standing up to whatever Mother Nature is sending its way.
Great pictures of decay - one wonders how it can stand up.
I'm surprised salvagers haven't claimed these boards for reuse.
nice! if i had sopped at every decaying house/barn etc here in the USA i would not have come far... :) and each time i am disappointed when not stopping....
this looks like it could be in Bodie!!! Great captures!!!
I wonder what hopes and aspirations the people had who built this home and why it was eventually abandoned. This photo really stirred up some emotions in me.
very much in need of some TLC
Rampant in rural America.
Thanks for visiting my blog; I appreciate it! Come back often!!
