Driving down a long lonely road in Texas, with big open fields on either side, you'll see an old, dilapidated building sitting in one of those fields; and they fascinate me.

I wonder if the owners of the property even know if it's there. I wonder how long ago it was abandoned. Who lived there? How old, exactly, is it?

I've never had a chance to go in one so I wonder if there's anything left inside. Old furniture? Are there old books littering the floor? Someone's diary, perhaps?

There are towns with abandoned buildings in them, also, which look very old. I try and imagine what they looked like during their heyday, when they might have bustled with activity, before the modern day slowly creeped up on them and pushed them into the past.
