It happens every now and then - in the very outer periphery of the sight when driving, you spot something. I assume I’m not unique in the sense that most of the time, the brain simply wipes it away. In this case, this very remote and apparently abandoned house caught my attention and immediately the curiosity made me make an instant and probably dangerous U-turn. Obviously, no one had been living there for a long time and the 4x4 capabilities of the car were put to some strain just to get there.
I must say that abandoned houses with all their signs and attributes of a civilized life and the everyday duties always bring up thoughts and emotions. Just to walk around in the remains of someone’s past life and finding these small things, like a left over receipt from the local grocery store, dated some thirty years back is something very personal, and at a certain point, I simply cannot bring up the camera to take a shot. Although the place seems to have been abandoned for at least twenty years and presumably the owner being dead by now, it feels too private.
