Childhood Lost

The abandoned rocking horse can be just seen through the dark, vine covered windows. The family and child are missing, gone.


I found this great but spooky abandoned house down a hill off the highway, what made it even more haunting was the abandoned rocking horse in the front yard and that police tape out back. You can see the horse in the second lower pane from the left.


I found an open door and went in cautiously. Vines were growing over the front windows and were haunting. I converted the pic to B&W so you could see the detail in the patterns on the glass.


And of all the abandoned houses I've been in, this is one I have no desire to go back to. It wasn't haunted, just exceptionally creepy.
