Lost Architecture

Abandoned outbuilding – Poolesville, Maryland

We have lived here in the DC region long enough to observe the gradual loss of old architecture – buildings that were either too cheaply made and began to literally fall apart with time, or they no longer suited the needs that they were originally built for and have either been abandoned or torn down. This outbuilding is a perfect example; it was large enough for tables, chairs, and windows – but was abandoned for some reason and has slowly succumbed to the elements. This photo was taken when it was still accessible to casual hikers; now the property has changed hands, a huge metal fence has gone up, and foliage totally obscures what little remains of it.
