There's no shortage of  abandoned buildings around here. Sometimes the roof caves in or plant life appears, growing out of the chimney. The buildings themselves are constructed really well and the walls stay intact, even if the roof disappears. The peeling stucco and layers of pain create interesting patterns and textures--a sort of abstract art.

The other day we passed such an empty house. What struck me about this one was the sight of the dessicated remains of a spider plant in the window.
Something about that seems particularly sad to me.

The plastic flowers in the window on the other side of the door seem quite out of place.
It would have been a nice house once.

Maybe someday someone new will live in it and love it again.

I love nice and unique window finds ( not sure if this is correct English)
Anyway, I enjoyed your posting.
