This detail, from the house I posted a few weeks ago, shows signs of significant structural damage and decay. In my view, this is what makes the composition so interesting.

Stay cool and safe!

Not Modern

My husband and I were in the real estate business for many years. We had rental properties and renovated and sold others. I took this photo while on a tour of a place that was for sale.

Abandoned Home

Abandonment is what first drew me back to photography. While I enjoy exploring many genres, my eye is always drawn to the ironic beauty found in decay and neglect.  See my “This Ole House” gallery for more examples of my work exploring abandoned homes.

Cheers,
