A Forgotten House

When I first drove past this house three years ago, more of the facade was present. Time and weather have done their work. Curiously, there are no No Trespassing signs nor any large destruction machines around. So I felt allowed to wander.

I didn't realize I was serializing on this topic until someone pointed it out. So, I am formally organizing it from here on out.

Two from today.

Have to agree on #2 Matt, but #1 catches my eye. The car appears to be a 68 or 69 Chevelle, but leaning towards a 69. The driver has my attention as well. I keep looking for Jeff Dunham because the driver has a strong resemblance to Achmed the Dead Terrorist, if you have ever watched Jeff Dunham the ventriloquist. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GBvfiCdk-jc

The forgotten house series is captivating, and sad. I am especially taken with the shot through the narrow doorway into what was likely the living room, with the back of the settee, and the view going right through to the blasted wall and the exterior beyond. I have to wonder what happened here? It looks like tornado damage. It's surprising it hasn't been torn down as it is clearly a hazard! Hope your tetanus is up to date. (N)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Yes, looks like tornado damage, but I doubt it. I don't know anyone who lives near there so I can't ask. Thanks for the comment. Matt

That is fascinating. I would have wandered too. I'm always intrigued with these doorways into someone else's private lives. It's like a cemetery only you know even less about why this happened. You have to think this one was cataclysmic in some way. #2 and #5 stand out to me compositionally but they are all captivating in an eerie way.
