All of the residents have gone and left this house to fend for itself.

I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.

This is a beautiful old house. I love the weathered wood. I have always wondered why people have left and what their story was. I love taking photos of old houses!

Very nice color and detail in the aged wood. The sky above yesterday's barn was a little nicer, but I like this building better.
