Stopping by the side of the road...

zaiah and I spent the last four days camping near Puget Sound to celebrate our seventh anniversary, and to pick up the new addition to the household: a tiny blue Tonkinese kitten who will be a breeding tom for my kitten Kyla.

On the drive, we passed the ruins of an old house just off the interstate and (naturally) had to pull over to take care of it. The house is located in someone's back yard, so after we'd hopped off the interstate, we knocked on the door and asked the gentleman living there (a retired engineer) if we could take pictures of it. He agreed, and away we went.

Unfortunately, it was biting cold, so we couldn't linger. I did get some interesting shots, though. I love this kind of ruin!

I can't believe somebody actually lives there, and it's great he gave you permission to photograph it because I really like these photos. We've got nothing like that where I live, but I make the best of it:

An urban sunrise.

The guy doesn't actually live in this ruin; the ruin is in the back yard of the (rather nice) house he does live in. I'm making the second image into a 20x30 poster! :)

I see. I didn't expect the house would be very comfortable inside but it'll make an excellent poster.
