This old home is being gradually absorbed back into the landscape. Ferns have replaced grass in the back yard while vines race along the eaves as if they were tree branches. In 50 years will there just be a pile of rotten roof tin to mark the location? Or will it too be reduced to nothing but a reddish stain in the earth?
Although these are the typical sorts of thoughts that pop into my mind when visiting a location like this, a more pressing and perplexing question in this particular instance is why is there an iron on the roof? A Rubik’s Cubesque mystery!
For those who are interested, this photograph shows the exterior of the home featured in this previous blog post: https://lillyphotographywv.wordpress.com/2011/08/28/abandoned-19/
