This is the first shot in a photo essay on an abandoned victorian hot-house we discovered on a hike last week. Taken with a Canon SD800IS.

    Very very cool.

    This picture is so much more pleasant and interesting than the actual building, which I think just looks junky. Your picture kinda opens the place up and discovers something almost inviting. I want to just walk right in, but I bet I need to make sure my shots are all up-to-date.

    You’ve got such a good eye – actually, two…

    Brian: I actually think the building looks interesting BECAUSE of its junkiness. It tells a story in its current state: probably more than if it were in its heyday. There’s something about knowing how grand it was once, and how many hours someone enjoyed its pleasures that make its junkiness intriguing. It tells a story of how fragile things are, even substantial things like buildings. It also speaks to me of how readily decay will take over with human neglect in the mix. Besides all that, I also see in it how transitory things of this world really are. We can work hard to build up treasures and pleasures in this world, but time will have its toll, and we will truly be left with only the spiritual riches we have gained through Jesus.

    The next photo continues the story, at least in my mind…
