For this Sunday Snap, I traveled back to 2015…
This photo was taken back in September of 2015 when I was just becoming interested in photography. I shot this image with a Canon PowerShot SX400 IS which is a point and shoot camera. I originally purchased this camera to document hiking trips. That is what spurred my interest in photography. I still have this camera and enjoy using it on occasion.
The camera lacks the ability to manually set aperture or shutter speed, it doesn’t even have a proper viewfinder, just a screen. But, I like it none the less!
The subject of today’s snap is an abandoned building about one mile from my home. It fronts on the same highway that I travel each day during my daily commute. I wish I knew the history of this building but unfortunately, I don’t. To me, it has the look of an old country store. I can imagine a single family running the store on the ground level while living on the second floor above.
Abandoned buildings like this always make me wonder what happened.
How did this building fall into ruins?
Who is the owner?
Why has it been left to be consumed and reclaimed by nature?

Thanks for viewing, I hope you have a great day!
