I am always a little torn when I photograph an abandoned house.
Part of me is excited with the unknown ,as I am a huge history buff the thought of finding some relic of the past fills me with a large sense of wonderful adventure to explore their shatter remains.
The broken windows and doors beckon me in as she lays herself bare to my curiosity.
Once inside the only sound is the whisper of the wind along the walls of rooms that once knew life and laughter and I feel a deep sadness for her seemingly forgotten and lonely state.
So I spend a few moments with her reveling in her decaying beauty and snap a few shots so she knows she is not forgotten and her age has made her far more beautiful to my admiring eyes.

I understand your feelings. I often shoot old abandoned houses and find myself wondering about the people who once lived there. What they were like, whatever happened to them.

A rather sobering hobby. Nice capture. I like the miniature effect.
