Simple Definition of abandoned

left without needed protection or care – left by the owner – no longer held or thought of – given up

I have always been drawn to old abandoned houses and I have photographed many, on this site I have chosen the places that have been the most interesting. I know the story behind a few of them but not all and I wonder sometime if the house I live in will become abandoned in the future? I’m sure the people who lived in these houses did not expect that the house they spent a long time to build would look like this today.

I see how quickly the natural elements quickly take over when there is no one to look after the houses and I see how fragile everything is if we do not attend to it and that goes for everything in life.
