Back in January, Day 25 of the 365 Days of Photos, I posted photos of an abandoned house in West Texas. Tina and I have been making quite a few trips to West Texas over the last several months to visit with her dad.
One thing about making repeated trips to a place that has few alternative routes is you start to recognize landmarks. This past weekend we realized the abandoned house I had taken photos of 3 months ago had burned to the ground.
I found it sad to see such a beautiful old house sit abandoned and even worse to see it destroyed by fire. Someone’s memories were in that house. Someone grew up there, someone farmed there and someone shared that space with family and friends. Now it is gone….sad.
