This Old House
This old house lives at the corner of Routes 682 and 643 as you head toward Haven Beach. I've been taking its portrait for years now and really admire it.
Over the weekend I took Commenter LLC's advice from a few days ago and looked into the site Abandoned America:
"The site "abandoned america" has photos of countryside structures but also will feature old churches, schools, factories, defunct cemeteries and urban decay: www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151902567162320&set=a.57751472319.66979.51371492319&type=1&theater....abandonedamerica.org ."
I "liked" them on Facebook and have been mesmerized by the photos ever since. They're really incredible.
Anyway, many thanks to LLC for turning me on to that site, it's nice to know I am not alone in my love for and admiration of old, decaying structures. They're absolutely beautiful.
Thankfully there are plenty of old, abandoned structures to choose from around here in Mathews.
In completely unrelated news, today is the last Monday holiday until Memorial Day. On the one hand that's depressing, because May seems like it's so many months away. On the other hand, Memorial Day! It's somewhere out there just waiting to make an appearance on the calendar!
Let me be the first to say that I simply cannot wait.
p.s. I'd also like to share my new favorite song and video (click here), which my blog friend Laurie brought to my attention over the weekend. This may be the one and only thing that pulls me through the month of doldrums otherwise known as February. This may also be my new theme song.
(Not sure what my old theme song was, that's a question for another day.)
