I’m currently going through some changes that should provide for a better life in the future. Well, as much as physical things can provide. One thing I’ve started is renovating a room in my house to be a music/photography/computer room. There will be a specific area for my computer for both working on photos and to use as a digital recording workstation. I’ll have room for a large-scale printer, which I’ve always wanted but never had a proper place for. Also, I’ll be able to set up mics and a camcorder to record my guitar playing for my practice purposes as well as eventual posting on the web. Trying to do that kind of thing in the dining room just doesn’t cut it. Along with displays of my guitars and photos, it should be cool. I’ll post pics when I’m done.

Another change involves my employment, which I’ll discuss at a later date. I’ve had my ups and downs the past few years and things where sketchy at times but through patience and perseverance I’ve made it this far and, let’s just say, I’m good for now.

Alright, on to the photos! I spotted this house a few weeks ago and thought it looked interesting, with the brief glimpse I had at the time. It’s in an area of town that quite a few old condemned properties are being torn down, with good reason as most of these houses have long been abandoned. Some of the houses do look like they were stately homes at one time and it’s a shame they met this fate. I’m a fan of old architecture and don’t like to see it simply disappear, but in the name of community safety I guess it’s better that they get rid of them. This house certainly looks like it has seen it’s share of changes. Whatever its story, it looks like a sad ending. Pentax K20D, DA17-70.

And here is a detail of an upper floor window. I liked how the furniture is busting out of the house.

    I love these photos. The detail and colors are great! You really know how to bring an old house back to life filled with an abandoned beauty that is just stunning. I now look at abandoned houses in a whole new way. Thanks for sharing.

    Also I wish you the best in regards to your upcoming change. Change can be great!
