Was out doing some exploring the other day looking for abandoned houses to photograph, and Ontario sure is not short on abandoned and derelict houses. Its been asked many times, how do these houses get abandoned? how can people just walk away from such beautiful houses and let them decay? There are many reasons why these houses are left to be reclaimed by Mother nature. Some are abandoned for obvious reasons, they are old, falling down and not worth the cost of restoring. Many times rural property is bought up by large farming operations for the land only, they have no interest in the buildings and they are just left empty and neglected. What every the reason, seeing some of these old majestic abandoned houses returning to the earth is both sad and beautiful at the same time. They can definitely spark many different emotions.
