General Auto Repair- Seen Better Days

Outside Roanoke VA

From the Archives when we visited Mark's Parents-in-Law in Virginia. Now I see the POSTED sign. Pulled over and took it from the car. Here's where the quote at the top comes in-"Place with trace of humanity."You see them all the time.You imagine who ran the place,who drove their vehicles up to the door?The coke bottles glass, not large.No one has been there for a long time.Rusting equipment, the tall grass.What was left inside?


Front Lawn Outhouse

Mark says, “it looks like a picture some person took when they pulled over to the side of the road.”  Yep! That’s it.  Old Washington Ohio again. Sometimes you just aren’t sure why you  photograph something but you don’t want to regret that you didn’t later, so you shoot, look at the pictures later.  You respond to something you see.  Shoot it. And wonder.  What was someone thinking?  How did this come to be here? I know there is a backstory.  Aren’t outhouses usually in the back of the house?  Clearly whomever placed it here wanted people to see it.  And so you are…..

Anyone with a guess what the story is on this one?
