Sometimes, the most interesting photo ops stare at you every day without you being aware of them.
Just outside of a small town that lies north of my current residence, there is a cluster of trees and bushes along a busy thoroughfare. On all sides are businesses, restaurants and gas stations; the sound of traffic never ceases. But the vegetation hides something from the casual driver: a sight that if it was revealed would seem not just out of place but add a flavor of desolation to an otherwise thoroughly suburban landscape.
From the depth of the undisturbed and shrouding snow, no one has been in the house for some time. And yet the windows, so far as I could see, were unbroken. Perhaps the previous inhabitants have passed on or moved away. And now, as the bustle of life and commerce continues beyond the treeline, the wind sighs through the empty rooms and halls.
