When we first moved out here, J and I drove past this tiny, dilapidated building by the side of the road and said to ourselves, "What a great backdrop for pictures."
It was so rich with texture: the peeling paint, the crumbling bricks, the broken windows....
We must have driven by it at least a hundred times in the last 6 years, always with the thought that we should really take advantage of such a great natural setting.
Fortunately, at the end of a long day in January, J stopped on a whim and snapped a few shots as the Little Miss C and E ran around and explored.
Just in the nick of time! The very next week, the entire place was boarded up and fenced off. Not only was it inaccessible, but the look was completely ruined! It's probably going to be torn down and replaced with some fast-food monstrosity.
Thanks to J's impeccable timing, we won't be kicking ourselves over the lost opportunity for the next 6 years. *whew* Close one!
