solo post - T
not satisfied with our exploration of the abandoned house, my friend Zach and I went back. the man across the street warned us that the house was haunted. we were ridiculously creeped out by that news, but still determined, so we entered the house. what once was someones room for entertainment or family dining now was a space void of anything except a single light bulb hanging from a cord, the light had been shut out by the curtains that were safety pinned closed in the middle. the house was completely empty - it was truly desolate. as we went around the house, we kept taking note of how creepy the lack of light was. the only room with any day light in it had literally six different types of wallpaper patchworking the walls and contained the door that we had tried to get in from the back - it was locked in three places. in the kitchen there was a calendar from february (same month we entered - creepy) of 1985, indicating that it had been abandoned for twenty-four years. after we had finished looking around, we closed the door and left the house - hopefully we didn't disturb the ghosts.
to me there's something fascinating about abandoned homes - there's mystery and intrigue about the people who lived there. when I look through these houses to find a great shot, i find myself thinking what kind of people lived in this house, what were their lives like? did children live here? at one time, this was someone’s home, and now it just sits, being neglected and exposed to the elements of nature - it's sad.
i had to borrow a camera - mom has had mine since Nov. : (

If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
