I Spy 10-13-11

It's that time again! Time for me to join up with my pal Dazee and do the weekly I Spy.








Photobucket


This weeks prompt was ABANDONED and Bloggers choice. I pass a few abandoned places here in town frequently, so yesterday when I picked up Kelsey at school (she had to stay late to take a test) we swung by these places to take pics really quick.

The first one is located near Jilly's school. Upon taking a closer look at it yesterday I think it had a fire in it, hence why it is now empty. It looked like there was black smoke stuff on the side of the house (not seen in the picture).

I wish I had taken my camera with me yesterday morning when I took Kels to school, it was still a bit dark then and the full moon was above that house and it looked creepy & cool. To bad I missed that shot.

The next one I'm going to show you is located on Rt. 34, this house has been this way ever since I've been living in this town, not sure when it got abandoned. This house interests me, I wonder the story behind it, why it was left...is it haunted? I'd like to go through it, but I'm sure its probably dangerous inside since its so old and falling apart.

To bad houses can't talk, I bet this one would have a lot to say. This house also has a barn...well, whats left of a barn...

Poor old barn.

Now, for Bloggers choice...This is a hard one. Over the weekend I took the girls to Sannauk Forest Preserve for photos. I have several I like and I can't pick just one, so I'm not going to limit myself :) Here are the pictureS I have picked:

It was so nice out over the weekend, temps in the 80's. We enjoyed it while we could :). I'm anxious for cold weather and SNOW to come, but I hope it stays away until Nov. 1, gotta have it nice for Halloween :)

Thats it for this weeks I Spy. Next weeks theme is PLAYGROUNDS and bloggers choice. Be there or be square.

Toodles!

I love old buildings. The wood is just stunning. You have great shots of your girls. I'm glad you shared them with us today.

those houses are sooooooo awesome!!!!! I love the first one. It looks like it would have a lot of character. I agree, I would love it if houses could talk.

Your photos of your girls are always awesome.

That first house looks like it would have been a beauty in it's time and could definitely be a beauty of horror now for a haunted house:-) Love the pic's of the girls, that 2nd one with the oldest in the tree is great!

Just popped over from Dazee's blog. Love the houses, they look very American to me, but of course they would to a Brit! :D
