My fiance had to check out some abandoned sites on Florida for a school project, so he brought his in-house abandonment aficionado, yours truly. It was a fast run from site to site, but we managed to get a few good shots in, and discovered one of the most morbid sites yet.
This former site for Louisiana Office Supply should be turned into a club that could then also be the HQ for Red Stick Roller Derby.
Why, it's already a bit like a roller rink; people have been removing their shoes by the rear entrance.
Below in the foreground you'll see another shoe and some overgrown shrubbery.
And in some other overgrown shrubbery was another shoe, and still another shoe was helping support the front bottom corner of the porta potty.
Next we found...an abandoned funeral home! (Jackpot!)
Here's the sign, currently enshrouded (as it were) under a tarp.
Evidence suggested that someone's been spending some hang time at the front area of the funeral home: evidence such as an empty 40-ounce malt liquor bottle in one of the hanging planters and the tableau below: Family Dollar allergy medicine shots.
We went around the corner to the back, where I took this photo through one screened window.
From there I turned to the left, and the view through the garage-door window was...THIS!
Those are what you think they are.
If this were a concert, this is where I would say, "Thank you! Good night!"
But then I might come back onstage to show you this: Around the next corner was this Humvee with the vanity plate "UNDERTAKER DAVE" (who might be one of my ex-boyfriends, since they were all named Dave).
The photo's not lined up so good because I was pretty much running away in fear of an encounter with Undertaker Dave, who for all I knew might want to introduce me to Coroner Joe.
Elsewhere, we found this mess.
Thank yoooou! Good night!
