I fricking adore these.

There is nothing so interested as house taken back over by nature.

Oh, wow! I see your (hilarious) picture often at chronicle.com. How cool it is you visited my blog?!! I'm glad you like the pics.

I always wondered the obvious about abandoned houses - what happened to its occupants? The phrase "lives interrupted" crosses my mind.

Dr. Ding recommended you and she is always right.

I constantly take pictures of abandoned (or just plain weird) houses. My husband gets ten kinds of pissed off about it but I can not help myself.

This is one of my faves: http://www.flickr.com/photos/16968197@N02/2258858621/

Dr. Ding has excellent taste. I really appreciate her linking to me!

Your picture is pretty stunning. Someone else commented that they were jealous of it, and that was my first inclination!
