Dead Houses

Maeve and I went for a walk to a miserable old run down factory surrounded by ivy and beautiful trees - she flocks to greenery and nature, and I to concrete and corrosion, so we compromise. The old factory pleased me as I have a huge love for anything decrepit. I like thinking about all the life that has been there before. I think decay is very beautiful, it exudes such an eloquent sadness. Crows always nest around barren areas too. Perhaps oddly, I like crows - they give such a grim and gothic feel to their surroundings. Dead houses are so soulful. Interestingly enough - my mother is an artist - she paints, and buildings are a large feature in her subject matter. Whenever she paints a building though, within a few years it it demolished, uninhabited or re-built.
Credit for these pictures goes 50/50 for Maeve and I. The pictures of the girl below are of Maeve.
