Treasures Left Behind
The house had some surprising fixtures that were fun to photograph. I converted most to black and white. I will return to this spot and shoot in color, as I already have some ideas for next time
The home could not have been abandoned too long ago as some items are fairly modern. The shower hooks above and light fixture below are still used today. The house, equipped with electricity and modern plumbing did have signs of a fire in the kitchen. Whether it was purposely set by partying teenagers after the residents left or if it was the cause of the evacuation, one may use his imagination.
Based upon the fixtures and remaining items in the house I would estimate that this house was once home to middle class folk. A modest home in size, location and material, I wonder why it was deserted.
This mousetrap caught my attention because I could suspect that it was placed by the front door when the home was first 'closed up'. Many years later, there is no need for the trap, as the doors and window frames now serve as useless barriers to critters and people.
