Abandoned Summer

Summer is over, today is the first day of Autumn. Which means the SNOW we had yesterday actually happened in the summer. Luckily it looks like we are back to regularly scheduled fall programming with warmer temperatures and sun returning on Sunday.

Here are a few photos of abandoned homes that I took this summer. I love the character in these places and the stories they must be keeping.

I took hundreds of photos this summer in Alberta (and a few in Saskatchewan). This is a good way to remember where I was. Plus this way I don't have to post them individually and think of clever things to say each time. So onward we go!

Near Innisfree

Near Vegreville

Near Viking

Near Benalto

Near Spruceview
 
Near Caroline

Near Sylvan Lake

Near Pine Lake

Near Carbon

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, without snow. It is much too early for snow.

  1. I am going to be dragged kicking and screaming into winter. I did not want my summer to end.

  2. When I see the photos of old abandoned houses, I often wonder about the people who lived there and the reasons they walked away from their home.

    1. Me too Vicki! I think a lot of times the owner has just passed away with no one to look after the old place.

  3. I have a fascination with abandoned properties too, Jenn. These are great photos. I especially love the black and white.

    1. Thank you! I love how black and white looks. That particular photo was saved by b/w. It was a badly lit photo but I loved the house so much.

    1. I do like fall, I do not like winter. Not looking forward to shoveling and scraping ice off my car. Ah well, that's Canada winter! lol

  6. I like that lead (near Vegreville) photo the best! Summer is officially over but that means fall foliage and then tasty winter photos. :)
