Hazard or Beauty?

Out doing assignments today. One property had six outbuildings, all in disrepair. That makes for a lot of work for me taking and processing and labeling pictures. The insurance company only sees a broken window frame and peeling paint. But my "other" set of eyes liked this picture a lot. What do you see?

What makes for interesting photos can be a pain if it's your own property - leaking windows cause damage.

I do like to photograph old barns, and other buildings - before they keel over. I'm documenting.

The works of man crumble and fade. God's creation continues to renew itself. That includes the golden rod.

Yes. It's very lovely photo, and there is something appealing about ancient and decrepit things that have been well used and loved.

All I saw was the golden rod until I read "broken window frame" The golden rod is getting into full swing around here. I always love seeing the fields of yellow

How pretty the yellow goldenrod is against the dilapidated siding.
