Neglected Beauty: Competing against the thieves

SwittersB-neglect-collage-photography-old building-rusticI have driven by this old structure…probably migrant worker’s living quarters in the day…countless times in the last 18 years. It sits on a back acreage of an old farm long since torn down. Today I noticed the always present tall grass was gone and the trees nearby had been pruned upwards just enough to reveal worn timbers and the sagging structure. I could see into the structure through the broken panes of glass. I parked and walked up to inspect the interior and to take a look at the old wood. When I moved around back, I was met by a hidden beauty…long neglected, never visible from the nearby road. Amidst the rot, overgrowth, chipped paint and broken window was a scrambled pink rose competing and winning against thieving grass, vines and weeds.

Vines & Briars About to Spring

An old, historic farm house and outbuilding. The farm house is maintained as best as possible by volunteers, but the outbuilding is losing the preservation battle. Cracks in the brick, intrusive, prying vines and decay are having their winning ways. Holes and cracks are already active habitat for birds. The vines and briars are sprouting to life and soon will further force their way into nooks and crannies and ever so powerfully loosen the structure. Spring in coming to life and soon the tired structure will be encased in vines and briars.

Photography: Corner Post & Moss

Corner Post & Moss SwittersBxAn old holly tree orchard and farm. The old structures torn down; the trees all cut down. This one remaining remnant of boundaries stands…a corner post.
