A house is never still in darkness to those who listen intently; there is a whispering in distant chambers, an unearthly hand presses the snib of the window, the latch rises. Ghosts were created when the first man awoke in the night. ~J.M. Barrie, Little Minister
Time rushes towards us with its hospital tray of infinitely varied narcotics, even while it is preparing us for its inevitably fatal operation. ~Tennessee Williams, "The Rose Tattoo"
There is a court house somewhere in southern Indiana that has had a tree growing out of the tower roof for many years now. It isn't even abandoned, they just left it grow there. I remember being mystified as to how it was growing there without dirt. Here, the decay and degredation of the buildings have provided plenty of growing materials.
It's like a strange, surreal art gallery.
"A thousand horse and none to ride! -
With flowing tail, and flying mane,
Wide nostrils never stretched by pain,
Mouths bloodless to the bit or rein,
And feet that iron never shod,
And flanks unscarred by spur or rod,
A thousand horse, the wild, the free,
Like waves that follow o'er the sea,
Came thickly thundering on,...
~Lord Byron, XVII, Mazeppa, 1818"
What a beautiful thing. There are merry-go-round museums that would probably be interested in this.
Actually, it's a rabbit in a magician's suit. Just as scary!
It's probably the base to something that just isn't there anymore.
It looks like the chateau in Disney's Snow White. She sings to the well and the prince comes and she runs away inside and looks back out a balcony.
Hansel and Gretel, it's a fairy tale house!
The colorful balls give it a jovial aire!
Why was it inaccesible? In too poor of shape?
This is probably the male.
Probably a good bet that this bird is sitting on a nest, they lose weight when they do.
Imagine coffee, doughnuts, rustling newspapers.....
