Is Anyone There? – Video

Here is a short video I put together of the decaying house pictures I posted previously. Make sure your speakers are on!

Peeling Back the Layers of Time

The Layers of Time

The Layers of Time

Peeling paint revealing layers of time gone by. One layer on top of another. Some blending. Some revealing.
Sounds like real life Photoshop.


Is There Anybody In There?

Is There Anybody In There?

Is There Anybody In There?

Hello? – – I wonder to myself, Is there anybody in there?  What the heck is that red thing? A huge stuffed chicken or something? It just added to the creepiness of the place.

And if you want it to last you need to build it well. Often the fireplace is all that remains when a house collapses for whatever reason. I don’t think that will be the case here!


A Different Doors Open

Doors Open

One open door led to another beckoning you to walk through. Peeling paint. Decay crunches underfoot. Who lived here? Home Sweet Home now in ruins.




Inside there were rooms of discarded items, crumbling walls and peeling wall paper.

I recently came across this abandoned house. Upon entering you can feel your adrenaline start to attune your senses to the surroundings. Is there anyone in there? Is it safe? Will the floors hold me? Then the driving force urges you on. I’m going to get some great shots in here.   Inside there were rooms of discarded items, crumbling walls and peeling wall paper. I makes you wonder why some of the discarded pieces are there. A childs lawn chair. A basket of fake flowers.

I have a few more to share in the next few days.

Brownfield sites are commercial or industrial properties that are underused, vacant or abandoned. This site is the Greenwich-Mohawk site in Brantford and is made up of 50 acres in the south east area of Brantford. The burnt out section  is the result of a fire in 2002.
