"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."
~ Andre Kertesz

Very striking - first thought was of 'urban decay' but this then has a rustic, rural feel...

The abandoned house makes a great subject for photography but, not so pleasant for the lady who passes by daily.

Arr Day from Montreal, Canada

Beside nostalgia, there is to be found a striking testimony to all the life spans theses places have seen; breathing truth into our dreamy lives, blowing all our expectations to ruins - it wasn't meant to be easy.
I really love this place and you caught it just perfectly. Weather me and I will outlast you, stronger even.
