    Wow!

    Do I see right, are there already trees there that grow from the inside out of the window? Soon enough there will be trees growing through the roof! Amazing to see that such property can get simply abandoned and no one does anything about the building! I doubt this would happen here in Germany. A company would come and ... yes. Maybe. If there's someone there to pay for that company... :scratch:

    What a find.
    Have you also ventured inside?

    I'd call it a "unique fixer-upper opportunity."

    There is a newspaper in the yard. I think someone still lives here.

    The first pp convinces me more than the pure b&w.
    And who knows, maybe that newspaper's being delivered to someone no longer there for ages and no one has ever ended the subscription (nor paid for it, though ... :scratch: ), so the neighbours come to take advantage of a paper arriving next door?
    I cannot imagine to be LIVING in a house where the trees already grow out of the windows.

    haha @ LaFoto.

    Thats a lovely photo. I loved the first one than the B&W. Thats such a lovely place to be abandoned.. but i really wonder who could possibly be living there!! .. are you sure its not haunted?.. lol .. maybe a ghost who reads newspapers? ;). lol.. just messing.. lovely snap! lovely snap! :)
