Thanks for the birthday wishes, Sherry🌷

We saw many other abandoned houses and barns that I couldn’t photograph because they were next to inhabited homes (Why??). And, we live in a heavily armed state with a vague and easily misapplied Stand Your Ground law that would allow anyone to shoot us if we stepped on even a corner of their land to take a photo. Hell, they could shoot us on the side of the road and get away with it! We had to remain very cautious. If I felt safer, my collection of old buildings photos would be over two dozen. The number of abandoned structures in the country is astounding and we only covered a area of about 25 square miles.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
