the first one captivated me. i stared at it for a long while and dreamed of the old school building in which i attended english classes.

...a beautiful pictoral story! What fun to go on picture taking road trips..

Kimmie said...

Amazing! I especially love the shots of the building with no roof. I hope it never gets demolished .... nature is doing a slow and beautiful job of that herself. I love the wood - it looks like driftwood.

You sure did have a beautiful blue sky that day!

Old towns
die and decay,
their remains become
engraved headstones.

Toni said...

Wonderful shots! I especially love the first two, even though they make me a bit sad.

These are wonderful images. Especially the building with the touches of red. There is nothing for me like a small Texas town. I keep trying to get Jeffrey to move to one.
