Hello again explorers,
With the recent warm weather just ahead of the official start of spring, we headed out to revisit a nearby favourite abandonment of ours around the corner. This old farmhouse has not been occupied for some time but the property is still productive, being used by one or more adjacent farm owners.
Not much had changed. Nature is still working on reducing the structure to rubble and leveling it to grade.
During the summer time, the flooded basement is a favourite haunt of every disease-carrying mosquito, but as the temperature still dips below zero at night and does not really thaw out the frozen block of water in the basement, it is a wondrous suspended animation that we had not really been able to capture appropriately with our cameras.
Personally, I am always amazed when I find muted colours on kitchen cabinetry, wallpaper, and furniture.
I guess I assume that after so much time untouched by human maintenance, all the colours would simply bleed out leaving what I imagine would be a dog's eye interpretation of the colour spectrum.
Anywhoos - we're looking forward to the warmer season to get in a decent amount of time of urban exploration. Look to several more posts over the course of this summer - until next time, Happy & Safe Exploring.
