Dy 12: Beautiful

Day 12: Beautiful

There is something hauntingly beautiful about old, abandoned houses. At one point in time, these places were built with love and care and housed families who shared a life together. Memories were built that can never be forgotten. But at some point they are abandoned by the owners who shared so many special moments in them.

Standing empty and alone, eventually, the elements of nature take over the structure as it slowly decays until there is nothing left but just a shell of what it once was. All that remains are hints of better times before the inescapable march of time and Mother Nature return them all to the ground from which they once sprang.

Even when the house has rotted to the ground though, fingerprints of the life of that now abandoned house will always remain to haunt you and anybody who passes through.

And that is beautiful.
