Abandoned and decrepit

Driving down a back road, we nearly missed this long empty farmhouse. With the roof so badly compromised, it will not stand much longer. there was not much inside.

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at My-Expressions.com. It is gone now.

Something tells me that this house is not going to stand still long. A tree will eventually fall and crush it like a pancake

you must not have done long studies ... to understand that the next breath of wind will completely destroy this building

@yoshimiparis: well, the walls and much of the roof is still sound, so I think it will be standing for a few more years

The house is almost overtaken by mother nature.
Great that it gets so nicely tidied up.
Beautiful image!
