A little dereliction addiction........

......'cuz I can't drive by these treasures on the backroads without taking pics of the interesting old architecture.......


These homes were somewhere in middle Georgia --west of I-75. You can pick just about any backroad from Atlanta southward and find awesome architecture. There are more derelict places than restored ones, but of course I prefer them with the artistic effects of weather, nature and time.......

I always try to stop in Lake City, FL to wander around the town (try the drugstore for some great food) and backroads--it is an unusual place with friendly people and interesting dereliction---this warehouse (?) on the tracks looks like an abandoned movie set.

Wow, that old warehouse is so cool! I'd love to go exploring and see what's inside!

Great pictures. I love them all. I think architecture is better aged.

Girl, you sure know how to torture...first the old buildings, then the beach, I soooo wish I could've gone with.

My mom called yesterday and asked when I was coming down...not in the cards at this time, with our busy season of soap-making and antiquing, but I'll get itchy travelin' fingers in the fall...actually I get them ALL THE TIME!!! Some day!

Have a good ol sniff of salty air for me too! have fun!

I love derelict ornate buildings. I found the loveliest old green Methodist Church on the DelMarVa Peninsula one time. I need to go back there--13 hours driving at least. They all put me in the mind of fixing them up and making them live again. I love that warehouse. It looks like it is strung with lights-definitely a movie set! Have fun!
