I’ll go to great lengths to get a photo, including sliding through a slimy window to gain access to a room whose door was blocked by a (minor) roof collapse. Where patches of roof were missing, an old apple tree was dropping its fruit through and onto the dirt floor below.
An old sink had been collecting water from the steady rains this past week, and some of the fallen apples bobbed in the murky water. My ears were tuned into the supple creaks of the building as I snapped away. Once I got what I needed, I slid back through the window and said a quick prayer against any eight legged hitchhiker who might have dropped in my hair on the way out.
