“The greatest loss lies in our inability to accept loss.”  ― Craig D. Lounsbrough I have a strange fascination with abandoned buildings, always wondering how they became abandoned and the stories they must have to tell when they were somebody’s home. Along the Ring Road we travelled through Iceland, there are many of these empty shells, some quite ancient, many perched along a lonely mountainside, lost in the vast, empty landscape which is… Read More

This week’s submission to Norm 2.0‘s Thursday Doors. Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favourite door photos from around the world. “Abandoned” This image is a far departure from my usual images of stately, ornate doors, yet they are still doors and I found them quite intriguing. As I was out hiking earlier this year, I came across an abandoned maple sap… Read More

“If you meet a loner, no matter what they tell you, it’s not because they enjoy solitude.

How did this old car get to its final resting spot under the canopy of the ancient maple. Did it just die… Read More

Near my home is a large tract of land (7,530 hectares) which was expropriated by the federal government in the early 70’s as the site of a future airport. After several decades, the airport is no closer to happening, communities have disappeared and, other than a few residences and farms, most buildings have fallen into such disrepair that they have had to be demolished. For a few years it was even a… Read More
