An Assortment of Abandonment

I have recently come across numerous abandoned houses.  Some I have sought out, some I have been shown and yet others I just stumble across.  They are all beautiful in their own ways. Here are some of my favourite photos of them.

A stranger in a strange land

Feeling a little house-bound last week end, I decided to grab my camera and go for a wander. I ended up in the little town of Grand Valley. My, but they grow large icicles there! Later I poked my head (and camera) into an abandoned house that was near the road. I thought the light coming in through the holes in the wall might make an interesting photo framed by the front door. After this I paid a visit to the Credit Valley Explorer trainyard. Gotta love those big toys!

That Rainy-Day Feeling

Those of you who have followed my blog for a while know how intimately my mood is connected to my photography. I don’t understand how it changes things. Do I compose differently? Do I use light differently? Do I choose different subjects? I really don’t know. It is not the result of any conscious decisions on my part to seek one “look” or another. It just happens. Looking at the photos I am posting today I noticed again how strong this correlation is.

This set of photos is from a house I visited this week.
