Abandoned






One of my favourite photographers is Cari Ann Wayman,
perhaps better known as yyellowbird.
These photographs are from one of my favourite sets on her flickr:
The Bracken House.

I love the feeling of sadness that she captures in her photographs of abandoned houses.
The wallpaper peeling off walls, the broken windows,
the overgrown gardens, the everyday items left behind
that are now redundent in use.

And then Cari herself features in a large amount of her shots,
dressed like a beautiful fairy,
amongst all the decay
