On an outing recently I passed an old brick home on a sort of hill. It was away from any other home..just sitting there. As I got closer it looked like it sat empty. I debated on stopping in the driveway to take a photo of it. Since the road was not highly traveled I just stopped and took some shots of it. DSCN8697

Brick homes that large out in the country are not seen very often.  It looked like someone had tried to update it a little. The back of the house had a built on deck. The closer I got the more beautiful the color of the brick.

Spotted this beautiful looking barbeque pit standing in an empty lot. Strange what items get left behind. It started to get darker and I headed for home.

  1. I love this post Carol. I too have an inquisitive nature about old homes or abandoned homes. My imagination kicks in I can visualize the ones that inhabited those dwellings and life that was lived there. I also love the architecture and think about the hands that built them.

  2. Oooh, where was this taken??? You KNOW how I love old homes too—many in Marshall that I drooled over and photographed the last time I was back! Always loved that old building in Albion where I took ballet lessons up on the top floor. I guess they were trying to save the building that last time I saw it. Hope they did!
