Another thing that doesn’t make sense

When I look inside abandoned places, I nearly always see something that doesn’t make sense, that’s out of place, that’s unexpected.*

In this case it was the chairs. Oh, and that lettering on the wall.

*The Patient Spouse maintains that one of these days I’m going to see a dead body. That may be why he generally waits in the car while I’m looking around.

On the third day

It was the third day of our trip. And it was Easter Sunday.

Seating Option

A few miles off the main road, we discovered a small community center (no, we never did discover a community that might have used the center). The outdoor area had seating for only one person, but I guess maybe everyone else could just play basketball.

And we all rush away

I was driving home from a weekend trip, and this place flashed by on my left, which meant that I made one of those photographer’s u-turns to get back to it.

It’s spring and the snakes are waking up, so I carefully picked my way across the weeds, watching for slithering movement by my feet. A nearby bunny startled me, but I didn’t see any snakes. I didn’t see too much of the building, either, because of that barbed wire fence guarding the place.

Architectural element and the sky

The bright sun made the stucco slightly reflective. The black and white processing made the blue sky almost black.

Nothing happened to the satellite dish. As far as I know.
