Curiousity peaks my imagination when I see an old overgrown place like this. What treasure troves lie inside? Despite the overgrowth, I see charm from days gone by. I can only imagine piles of old “stuff” scattered here and there. Leave it to my imagination…

This photograph was captured in Quarryville, Pennsylvania with a Canon 40D equipped with a 70mm wide angle lens. It has been altered with an Orton effect.

My life is like a well read book that’s never ending, at least for this moment in time. As I continually add new chapters to my book, I find that my photography plays a big part in it. This is most especially true as my great love and fascination with Mother Naure never wanes. It’s my hope that you, too, will share my joy as the pages in my book of life continue to flip forward! My Very Best, Polly Peacock
