I have always been drawn to abandoned structures. I think it is the mystery. They are like a novel missing the last chapter; where we find out what happened to the characters.  
Why are they left?  Who lived there? What memories are etched into the soul of the structure? What hopes are also abandoned? Why doesn’t anyone claim these structures? Why do they wait, season after season, until they finally crumble back into the earth? Many of these structures never made it through the winter. Their portraits are their tombstones – a tribute to them in their final days. 

As I move beyond mid-life to my later years I feel a bond with these structures and pay tribute to them.
