In Disrepair and Desuetude, Dilapidated, Decrepit, Ramshackled, Racked and Ruined...But Damned Photogenic

Posting hereabouts will be sparse for the next month or so. After this weekend's Ultimate Frisbee State Tournament and then the Senior Prom for Wesdom, we've got his HS graduation next weekend and Wisdaughter's graduation from Emory U. the next weekend. Then we get to go visit Wisdomie who's a Scuba Instructor in Hawaii for a couple weeks and help him move and get ready to complete his college at UH. After that I have to move Wisdaughter to a new apartment before she starts work (in her chosen field!!).

So, for now, some pics from Wesdom's prom pic session at an old (putatively haunted) mansion about three miles from my home I had no idea was there. The site was picked by the mother of one of the kids who happens to be a professional photog. These, unfortunately, are my pics (not hers), taken with my iPhone. As always, clic pics to embiggen slide show, mouse over for sometime surprise text:

The house. The site pre-shoot
The old sunroom
Looking in
Brighten the corner 
Hail, Hail the gang's all here!
Classic lines
The old greenhouse
Stairway to nowhere
The grounds
The garden path 
Musta' been grand
While a photo shoot happens, Jim H tries to get fancy
The house from the grounds
Can't keep the forest out
Can't you just hear the creaking and cracking?
Love in the ruins

The Garden Path!

It should be familiar to all of we/us sheep.

I sure do hope you saw, if not a ghost, at least an apparition or a spectre.
