Grimm Heart -Guest Heart Thursday

I enjoy walking with my sister.  Last week, for the first time in months, she and I walked through The Abandoned.  It was the first time I'd visited since Dad flew away to heaven just before Thanksgiving.  Somehow, it seems fitting, now that Dad is gone, that these buildings should be leveled to make way for something beautiful.  He would have liked that.

While Dad was in the hospital, the television series called Grimm filmed one of their episodes in The Abandoned.  They covered a lot of the local graffiti with their own sort of painted artwork.  This interesting heart is one of those.  It is surreal to see this heart outside, when not so long ago, it was inside.  Soon this heart will be gone, too.

Sissy and I often ponder how odd it will be when these buildings are completely gone.  I am so glad we took pictures of what will soon be a magical memory.

For more heart art, photography and altogether fabulous heart stuff from around the world, visit Clytie at Random Hearts for Guest Heart Thursday.

WARNING: With the demolition of these buildings, The Abandoned is especially dangerous.  If you trespass, you risk getting arrested and jailed.

My fave heart so far. I love graffiti like this.

That episode will be airing March 15th. It's neat to have some background info on the building.
