I recently move to South East Georgia…

From Old GA Buildings

And have already fallen in love with the old abandoned buildings, homes, barns, stores, etc.

From Old GA Buildings

So I Stalked Them!

From Old GA Buildings

In My Subaru On the Open Road With a Camera by My Side…

From Old GA Buildings

I Explored and Hunted.

From Old GA Buildings

Sometimes Breaking the Law…

From Old GA Buildings

Sometimes Meeting Nice People.

From Old GA Buildings

Like Grandpa David who owns the above barn and silo.  There is a dilapidated over 100 year old house that his grand father lived in nearby that I would love to explore.  He welcomed me back and I think I will take him up on that.  

Lovely man. The photo below is also from his property.

From Old GA Buildings

I want those things.

Love the curling wood chippy paint of the one below!

From Old GA Buildings

I love wood, but it is not a secret that I am in love with rust…

And love this rust to death!

From Old GA Buildings

Oh, the Rust, Green and Blue of it all!  

Old Brick and Old Wood…

From Old GA Buildings

Nothing Better…unless you added Rust to it!

Welcome, Come Right In!

From Old GA Buildings

Lovely Doorways, sigh.

Old Rust and Old Wood…

If You Threw Old Bricks in There I Would be Besides Myself with Giddiness!

From Old GA Buildings

There is a Story Behind Each One of These Buildings…

And I Would Love to Hear Each One!

From Old GA Buildings

Until Then, I Will Use My Imagination!

From Old GA Buildings

Are there Lingering Ghosts Here?

Maybe.

From Old GA Buildings

The door  shut on its own as soon as I walked up to it.

No wind. I kid you not!

From Old GA Buildings

The Door was Wide Open and it Slowly Closed as I Walked Towards it.

As I Stopped to take Photos, the Door Stopped Closing.

Oh, Yes…That Happened!

Any way, Back to the Bright and Cheery.

From Old GA Buildings

Love the Contrast of Color & Texture!
