    Love it! The angle of the fridge door, and shadows are perfect. And a nice dark blue sky! killer pic!

    Invisible and Stickman, thanks. The sky owes a lot to a polarizing filter.

    I took this one yesterday morning. This place is an hour's drive by dirt road from the nearest town (Willcox, AZ). I'd guess that three-quarters of the very widely scattered houses in the area are abandoned.

    Good find and I really like the shot.

    But I'm more impressed that someone had the forethought to remove the fridge door.

    I had the same thought. :)

    My favorite type of photography! I love to think of what the last owner's last day there was like and what they thought when they finally decided to abandon the dwelling that was once their pride and joy.

    This is a great shot! The contrast between the blue sky and the whole area is awesome.

    Thanks for the comments. rhall, this is west-northwest of Willcox in the southeastern part of the state. Chihuahuan desert, about 4,800 feet.
