The Backwoods of Virginia


We were driving to a lake the other day and passed this house.  My husband knows that I love old decrepit houses so he pulled over and watched the kids while I snapped some pictures.  I look at this house and wonder who lived here?  What stories have played out here?  If you look closely you see that it can't be more than 2o feet by 15 feet big.  What you see is what you get. Wow.

Almost looks like a child's playhouse. It's hard to believe that someone actually lived in it. We are so spoiled!

What a lovely photograph! Like you, I enjoy musing about the history of old houses. I like walking through old graveyards as well.

I adore dead houses, too. They're such fantastic storytellers in that mournful way.. they always make me stop and think. Such a lovely and dignified capture. beautiful.
