Abandoned corners are not usually so colourful. I hope this one remains abandoned to whatever creatures and vegetation can eke out a life in there.

  1. That place gives me the creeps. And there’s another, just up the street, where crows fly in and out the upstairs window.

    If it’s the place I’m thinking of, I’ve only seen pigeons in its empty windows, but I can see why crows would feel at home there too. The place in the photo seems to me more curious and incongruous than creepy, but if it was at the end of a quiet lane – rather than in the middle of a busy main road – it might send out more sinister signals.

    So is it the red hot internet shop that’s abandoned? Or the faux Dalkey blue and white seaside bnb paradise? Or the overgrown jungle-in-the-burbs bungalow?

    What a fun picture. The “INTERNET” with the arrow underneath is very very cute.

    Oh and support your local feathered community! Give in and foreclose!

    Stan, did you see BLDGBLOG’s post about wildlife taking over Californian foreclosed houses? Oh… about a year or so ago… rumours of big cats enjoying condo life and such.

    Lucy: I think all three are currently unoccupied by humans. In my college days the “faux Dalkey blue and white seaside bnb paradise” (lovely!) used to host a grubby but popular indie nightclub. Reminiscing about it, I’m tempted to try and take some interior shots.

    The BLDGBLOG post you mentioned (presumably this one) had passed me by, so thanks for bringing bobcats in foreclosed homes to my attention. Whatever next: monkeys in city halls?

  7. Lucy says:

    Yes, the bobcats. I’m now inspired to write something about an apartment I lived in when I was 18, later revisited (illicitly) to find it a wreck in an otherwise fully functioning apartment townhouse.
