There are just some houses and buildings where the position of the windows just makes it appear as though you are being watched. I feel it even more so when it’s an abandoned place. In this case the feeling was amped up several levels by not only the overgrowth and that I was hearing unseen “things” rustling though the weeds once in awhile but by one of the windows on the second floor. I had noticed there was yet another house behind this one as well as one to my right – three in total – when it happened.
I was contemplating the best and safest way to go further down the driveway when out of the corner of my eye I saw something move in one of the windows. I froze! This led to a standoff between me and the house. I stared up at the window waiting to see if it was just the old plastic in the window moving in the breeze or what. Nothing moved. Nothing… not even the leaves on the trees by the windows. I told the house that I wasn’t going to bother it and please return the courtesy as I turned and walked away from it and back to where DH could see me from where he was parked. Never got to the third house.
Definitely a creepy moment. I wonder what was written in the windows?
Slipping in a barn that I photographed from the moving car going down the highway when we returned from our trip to the private gardens. I don’t think it’s too terribly abandoned but it has a wonderful rusty patina about it as does the vehicle and the other buildings next to it.
When anyone compliments me on my work I am so pleased and honored (I’m over the moon when someone orders a print but I digress) because these photos I share with you represent a part of me. A blogger friend mentioned enjoying the rose photos I have been doing but missing the barns from the barn series I had done previously. Well, that just made me smile all over and because of that, even though I am still sharing the rose park photos (it will be people in the park this week) I’m slipping in this preview of a barn not shown before.
I will eventually get around to showing all of it but for now here’s this little teaser 🙂
