Guarding the door

The floor of this abandoned farmhouse was rotting through, but someone had left behind this stuffed bear in this loud floral chair.

Poor Teddy. Someone should have relieved him of his post long ago. Nice capture.

A fine subject to shoot in this house. I would wonder how all the tiny debris was left on the floor too.

I really do like this. This run down old place is great for this sort of shot, and the teddy really makes the image. Pulls it all together

The floral pattern of the chair stands out nicely in this composition!! I love the weathered look and peeling paint of the door.

Interesting with plenty of superb decaying detail but also a touch creepy (which works very well here).
