Happy May!

To start off the springy month, I bring you another part of my Abandons adventures series.

 

It was a dreary Sunday outside and the perfect day to explore around a creepy old house.

 

This is one of my favorite posts to do and it’s been awhile since I have done one- if you want to see my last one of the old circus train, check it out here.

 

So- I pass this house all the time. And as usual, I wonder it’s story and the people who occupied it.

The vines tell the time of when there was last someone taking care of this house…

Someone is clearly squatting here and you could easily see inside…

I tried to research the house online online but didn’t have any luck…

Adventures of Abandons: Part 3

music note Listening now…

 

[You guys know I love American Horror story!]
I hope you are having a great weekend! I’m going to be honest, I have barely left my house because it has been below 10 degrees all weekend!

Here’s part 3 of my abandons posts -[Abandons posts]

I only left the house once yesterday with my pup and bundled her up in her jacket to go for a ride to photograph an old train I pass frequently, but have just never had my good camera with me.

This is the old version of the Catskill Mountain Railroad.

For some reason, it has a circus feel to me, which I love even more.

You can see a crack in the window right near a windshield wiper and the controls that used to move the train…

We didn’t get too close to the longer section of the train- because there was a private property sign up and the train was not far from the road at all.

Let’s start our week off with some creepy, possibly haunted, abandoned structures. If you haven’t read my part 1 of this series, start here:

Meet the Cold Spring Hotel: 1904. 

FYI, no relation to “the beiber.” Sorry, guys.

Here’s what it looks like today, and sadly, will be demolished soon.

The house was fallen much more than the last time I was here!

A little editing is fun, too.

And next-

Welcome to Cortina Mountain Ski Resort! I’m combining pictures from my phone and my camera because I first visited last winter and got some good shots- when I went this time, there was a jeep parked nearby that was not last time and a dumpster filled with garbage- maybe they are fixing it up! So I tried not to linger too long….

I hope you all enjoyed!

Adventures of abandons, part 1

The last few years I have really loved finding abandoned structures and taking pictures of them. My friends and I enjoy it, my mom thinks it’s very strange. (Meanwhile, I distinctly remember her telling me a story of how her and her sisters went into an abandoned house with a beehive a few stories high!)

I went searching last weekend with my pup in the car and found a lot more than I had hoped for! Many times, I would be on a busy road and see one in passing and think ahhhhh! I wish I could pull over and get that but there are cars behind me….so I have started keeping notes of those in my brain as well as written down.

So I thought I would share my collection so far with you…in multiple parts. Because there will be more exploring to do. There always is!

I like to think about their story... did they have to leave or did they leave by choice?

Through research I found, believe it or not, this restaurant was only closed in 2009!

Margo’s Yelp reviews- was a booming place once!

I am not really sure what this one is, but it reminds me of Ireland.

The skies were also very dark that day and at times it was so rainy I had to pull over for a bit, so it reminded me of Ireland weather, as well!

Now, I already posted these in my Seasons passing post, but it was too relevant to this theme, I couldn’t resist.

Do not enter

But do you really want to enter?

And a few lost photos from my week before that somehow didn't make the blog... of this abandoned house I pass all the time and decided to photograph

These were taken awhile ago on my iPhone- not ready to see snow again! But I love this place.
