Derelict Buildings



This old house has been abandoned for a while and it looks like Mother Nature is on the move and reclaiming her piece of land. 


I'm not sure what this old building was next door, probably a shed.  It's disappearing into the long grass too.  I wonder how many buildings get abandoned and grown over when they still have some good years left if they are looked after.  It seems like such a waste.

  5. Looks like high winds or maybe thieves have taken the corrugated roof!

  6. I think it is sad to see such sights. To me, it would be better to tare down instead of letting it rot down.

  9. I am like Sallie, I imagine what the story behind the old building is. So, if I don't know, I make up my own.

  12. When I see a building falling from together like that, I always wonder what the people who built it would say about all their hard work and dreams...

  15. I have to agree with you that it's a shame buildings are deserted like that. Like Sallie and the others, I would love to know the stories those walls could tell. I think I have taken photos of that house, now that I read your reply to Amy :)
