An abandoned buildling by the side of the road near Three Mile Island, central Pennsylvania. I haven’t been able to find out any info about this cool little shack. Have never seen anything like the little ornamental shelf over the window.

Hello…I’m Yvonne. I’m a graphic designer who discovered a love for photography when my hubby gave me a point-and-shoot back in 2003. Several cameras and lenses later, I’m now using a Nikon D300. I have been showing my work locally (Lebanon, PA) and am always looking for new exhibition opportunities. I hope you enjoy my work. Please feel free to leave comments. I also love hearing about photo-op hidden treasures in the Central PA area.

    Oh Wow! What A Great Find And Shot:)xoxox

  • My hubby found this one for me. We’ve driven by in half a dozen times or more and never saw it. Then one day, on the way back from York or Columbia or someplace, he glanced over and there it was. The little ornamental shelf over the window gives it that air of mystery.

    Oh, it is adorable. I love taking pictures of abandoned houses and wishing I knew the story to go with it. Fabulous shot.

  • Thank you fotoflossy! Me too! I’d love to know what its story is…or see pictures of when it was actually in use as something. My preliminary web searches have yeilded nothing.
