Abandoned Train Car

This old, decaying train car has been seen around the house for over a decade, as it was one of my mother’s favorite painting subjects.

This beautiful piece of history is only improving with age, and sits high in the mountains of Colorado outside the mining town of Victor.

Ventures out into the mountain and rural life of farms and mining towns are always interesting.  You never know what you’ll find!

Boarded Up Farmhouse

Old Stone Barn



There is immense beauty in the world, and I have a particular love for the beauty of things that are worn and decaying, like this building at a train station.

There are fantastic textures to be found in what’s old, abandoned, and breaking down.

Everything reaches it’s end, but that doesn’t mean the beauty is gone.

Forest Garden

green moss in forest

I’ve been admiring the green moss growing in this man-made decay.   Not only is moss a beautiful subject, but it’s interesting to see nature living with materials forgotten by people.

This almost looks like a little garden.

Speaking of which, concrete blocks can be up-cycled as garden pots!  You probably don’t want to forget about and trip over them, though.

Reminiscent of Nature

Antique books look like nature

These old books are reminiscent of nature, with their layers of dirt and bindings that look like tree bark.

Crumbling antiques are interesting to look at and have their own unique beauty, though I hope to see less of these in life outside of photography.  I hope to buy fewer goods, reuse what I have, and pass on the rest.

Decay can be beautiful, but a long life for the benefit of many is prettier.

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’
