People lived there once, They had birthdays there and celibrated Christmas and grew up there. It is sad to see all the old things pass away into the history books. Within, a few year this old house will be gone, too. Then, it will become by-gone, forgotten memory of the past. Sad !

Julie Dant replied:

Hi Carl! Thank you for commenting upon this one. I agree with you. That is why I've tried to document all empty and abandoned old homes with my camera since the mid 90s. I even produced a DVD called Solemn Relics in which I featured over 300 b/w photos of Indiana's abandoned homes accompanied with Celtic Music. I hoped to convey to the viewer my own sadness as well as the lingering melancholia that seems to remain with these old housed when I get close to them. People seem to really like the video, and I have a sense of accomplishment at preserving them all. Nature and man are rapidly causing them all to disappear. Thanks again! ;0)
