I Spy

This is how I came to find the apples in the Bob for Apples post the other day.

The door to this building barricaded by roofing debris, I could only peer through the window (from this side, impossible to enter).   After examining the wreckage, I happened to spy these apples laying on the ground.  Suddenly, I heard a “plop” and saw a small splash in the old sink.  This prompted me to find another point of entry.  There had to be some cool shot just waiting to be discovered…

I circled the building and found the culprit…which also happened to be blocking a few windows.  Still, impossible to safely enter.

But then I noticed one window, whose slimy sill destroyed my jeans for the day as I slid through.  I found a second sink and even more apples. 

Walking through the rain, breaking into old abandoned buildings, and finding treasure (albeit ordinary and worthless to anyone but me), made me feel like a kid again for a little while.  Isn’t it amazing how different life can look through a view finder?

  1. Jolene, love the photo of the toppled sink! Have I ever mention how I like the stories you have with the photos? They compliment each other very well (I suck at writing, unless it’s a manual or something)! 😀
