As not only a blogger but an amateur photographer, I enjoy traveling the back roads of Texas and shooting photos of abandoned things. I always wonder about the story behind a once lived-in home, a deserted, rusted-out vehicle, or any number of objects in which the only life these abandoned items can show are the weeds and grasses growing on, through, and around them.
With more than 50,000 photos in my inventory, I decided to share some of my favorites. Honestly, it’s been so long since I took some of these that I don’t remember the exact location where many were taken, so I’ll only label the ones I recall. Even without the locations, the mystery around them is worth sharing to me. If you recognize any of them, feel free to let me know in your comments.
This quick trip around rural and abandoned Texas through my photography is barely a drop in the bucket.
Is there an abandoned place you really love that I need to see before it’s gone forever? Please share it. You never know when adventure will strike and a new road trip around the great state of Texas will occur.
I’ve worked in the travel industry for more than 20 years and I’ve been known to wander all my life. I’ve lived in more than 20 cities and towns and had the opportunity to experience a variety of people and places, introducing me to different cultures and allowing me to make friends along the way. I also majored in English in college. I don’t claim to be an excellent writer, proofreader, or grammar queen. I’m an amateur photographer and enjoy sharing the beauty of places I visit and and where I live.
