Abandoned and Overgrown, Take 2

A second abandoned, overgrown small building by the side of the road, this time in the opposite corner of the country: Florida. The header photo above is of a controlled burn along the road to Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve in Naples, Florida.

    • Your comments are always worth thinking about. I didn’t know you grew up in that area. I visited twice, in Jan., flying in to Ft. Myers, renting a car, and driving all over the place in search of birds and landscapes and glimpses of “real” Florida. Driving a little inland was very interesting – the farms, an old cemetery…wish I could get back there as easily but I need to find the western equivalent.

  3. This is one of my favorite themes and you certainly did a nice job of capturing it. I love old, abandoned buildings. Unfortunately, the ones around my neck of the woods are fenced off. People don’t seem to like “trespassers” around here.

    As for me, for this theme I would normally go after old abandoned farm houses and barns, but this time I decided to do something a little bit different. You’re welcome to come and see my take on the matter. πŸ™‚

      • Apparently, this is not such a problem in Great Britain, as there are a lot of oldβ€”re-e-e-e-ally old buildings which are open to further investigation, according to some of the people I’ve communicated with over there.

  6. Lovely image you’ve processed here BB .
    You make me want to beat a path to the door and explore some more … just a hint with the windows ajar and an intact light bulb outside maybe it’s not been empty for too long perhaps …

    • You noticed the light bulb – I love that detail – thanks Poppy! Can you imagine what the inside is like though, in that humid, tropical climate, with a window left open…
