The tank is empty!

We were out driving in pursuit of abandoned and interesting old barns when we drove past these two abandoned houses right there by the side of a busy roadway.  Of course this meant me getting excited and DH trying to figure out a place where we could turn around safely.  Mission accomplished; he stayed in the car waiting for me as I cautiously walked down an old driveway past bits and pieces of the former residents daily lives…

        I hope you won’t be too disappointed but this house was so covered by junk in the yard and nature taking it back that I couldn’t get too close.

        Oh, the dangers of exploration… And you can’t be too careful

        And I wasn’t kitted for this kind of exploration as we were just driving around not knowing what we’d find.

    Is it the last house on the left by chance?

    I love abandoned houses as a photographer. They have an appeal and are often very photogenic. Not always possible to find a parking spot to truly explore them so you were lucky…looking forward to seeing the rest of what you captured on this visit. (Suzanne)

    This must have been quit a home at one time. Can’t help but wonder about the former inhabitants/
