Enter At Your Own Risk

Project 52 Entry #48

This past weekend the weather in Toronto was beautiful. On Sunday, my husband and I decided to enjoy the sunshine and go for a walk. Of course the camera came with.  We headed to Unionville which is a small village in Markham, Ontario. Main Street is pretty much what you would expect of a small village…small quaint shops, restaurants, ice cream parlours. We veered off Main St. and walked up one of the side streets taking in all the pretty homes. As we were making our way up the street I spotted a house whose side windows were all boarded up. I thought to myself…hmmm, it would be great if I could get in there. Well I obviously didn’t just think it I must have said it out loud because my husband then said “look the back door is open.”  (Yes you could see through the front window to the back of this tiny house.) Much to my husband’s dismay, off I went to the back yard, through tall grass trying to avoid the wooden planks with the nails sticking out of them and the cinder blocks that were strewn all over the side of the house.

I cranked up my ISO and fired off a number of brackets. It was a tiny house so not to much to explore. I probably would have spent a bit more time in there and I was tempted to go upstairs but then I heard creaking coming from the second level so I high tailed it out of there. I’m only brave up to a certain point. 🙂

  1. Imagino la cara de tu marido, al mío en estas circunstancias le ocurre lo mismo, pero mereció la pena, bonitas imágenes, abrazos

    I imagine the face of your husband, mine happens in these circumstances the same, but it was worth, pretty pictures, hugs

  4. Any time you can get an image of the interior of one of these old places, it’s a good day. I understand about the perils of Rurex… you never know what might be in there. Good going.

  8. It’s a very old house judging from the wood and wall construction. I hope that someone will fix it up. Excellent shooting.

    • Thanks Victor. Yes it is very old. It’s in a beautiful neighbourhood so I’m assuming that someone will fix it up.

  10. Awesome, Edith! I only wish I was as brave as you. I think this is actually what’s holding me back…

    • Thanks so much Gracie. It was the middle of the day. I don’t think I would have gone in if it was dark out.

  17. I love the feeling of run down and left behind in the photographs. And it’s quite amazing how HDR brings out both details on the inside just as well as on the outside. Great work!

  18. Looks like quite a fixer upper. Nice captures, Edith.

  19. This is WAY cool, Edith, LOVE it! Do not engage with unseen forces in empty (or seemingly so) structures my friend, I think you were wise to grab your shots and hi-tail it outta there!
