Nature Conquers All

Now you see it...

Now you don't...



Now you see it, now you don't! Nature conquers all; a rather re-assuring fact to end the week on a positive note, depending on how you perceive life. Photography credit to Kevin Bauman whose 100 abandoned houses series draws us like bees to honey, perhaps because it's good to know that nature will clean up after the mess we, humans, leave behind.


It is hard to imagine that each of these houses was built with a dream, a dream of the architect who envisioned the house and the dream of the home owner (being a home owner is relative) to live in the home for which he or she probably worked most part of his or hers entire life. It's hard to imagine that families were raised in these now defunct abandoned houses, likely these families had the same dreams you and I had. They sat around the diner table, made love on the same diner table and had a couple of children (probably not on the same table but close enough). Fifty years ago, they probably never imagined what their house would look like today. A thought-provocative collection of photographs of abandoned houses in the greater Detroit area.



Just as the saying goes: earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. So enjoy life to the fullest, and use that darn diner table while you still can!
