A creepy, old abandoned house along Hickory Road, rural Pine Grove, PA, USA.

I will probably break out with poison ivy after taking this shot! I love how nature finds a way…. there’s a fern growing out of the second floor.

Taken 10/16/10 on a road trip with my neighbor Sharon!

    Great find, Lori!

    I get poison ivy easily (gotten it during winter)
    Would be cool if you had remote flashes or portable lights to add some interior detail… maybe for a future visit! ;-)

  • Hmmmmm…. interesting idea Aaron! Sharon and I loved this when we saw it! Thank you Aaron!

    I’ve seen it done at night (light painting). Maybe Sharon can venture in and light up the interior with a flashlight? ;-))

    I would love to see this in person Lori!! It looks like so much FUN!!! (heheheh) …. I would be tempted to go inside and tempt fate to see if it fell down on me!! But… if it has been reinforced with natures roots, I doubt it willl!! Nature providing strength?! Until nature pulls it down!! :))))
    Wonderful photography!! :)))
