Abandoned House in Dalyan

Whilst walking around the Turkish town of Dalyan last September I found this derelict home towards the outskirts of the holiday town. What I found so interesting was how nature had consumed the house and the grounds surrounding it isolating it from the outside community. However the homes either side were perfectly well cared for…like a shard of dereliction splintering through the street. The crib found in the back room tells a story though a vague one…are the family who once called this place their home ok? Do they have another home? Is the child still an infant or have they grown? If so what kind of life have they led so far? Sometimes the most beautiful element to a visually descriptive image is the stories they can’t tell.

I hope whoever lived here is happy…
