  2. Great photos Ron. The haunted home is really very nice, love it’s architecture. The Airstream is sad, never seen one so beat up.

    • Thank you John. At least the trailer has the Houston skyline behind it.

      • There are clubs that love those trailers – I bet someone who really loves them could restore it. What a money pit that would be though. I think they are very nice trailers.

        • There used to be huge Airstream gatherings in the 60’s before self propelled RV’s became popular.

  3. This place will be like The Heights in a few years. Glad you captured the photos before it becomes the past.

    • There is some renewal going on in the Third ward, but it is not gentrification by any means. The city is definitely going through major changes with what is happening in every area near downtown.

  4. These are fantastic! “Own it or it will own you” – what a lesson there is in that for some people! But, mostly I want to go in that gallery and wander through that haunted mansion!! ~SueBee

    • Thank you SueBee. The mansion recently sold for about $150,000 and probably will be torn down.

      • How sad :(

        March 10, 2014 at 12:19 pm

        • It has been exposed to the elements for too long.

        • most likely un-repairable, or would be basically a brand new structure by the time everything replaced. At least you got a photo of it for sentiment!

  5. Beautiful shots… and I liked the “Haunted” one :)

  6. Love the haunted house, also the contrast between the skyscrapers and the camp thing (don’t even know what it is!)

    March 10, 2014 at 3:30 pm

    • The camp thing is a travel trailer, search for Airstream. Thank you Denise.

  7. Very beautifull shots. I like it :)

  8. Haunted and haunting.

  9. THIS is a GREAT collection!

  10. Very nice B&W gallery. Is the Gaslight Gallery a former gas station? It looks like an old gas station we had locally before being tore down for another Wendy’s.

  11. Thank you for liking “Sunrays and Atmospheric Optics.” I enjoyed looking at these fantastic black-and-white photos. I also like “Haunted”, and it makes me sad to read that the mansion will probably be torn down. I recently saw a photo gallery about abandoned movie sets, and it surprised me how quickly places will fall into disrepair if they are not regularly maintained.

    • Nothing is forever, don’t be sad. Think of all the salaries that will be paid when a new home is built.

  12. I love the idea of something being haunted by more than ghosts. History… memory… nostalgia? These photos are so fantastic. But then, I’ve always been a sucker for abandoned buildings and vehicles!

    • It probably is something other than ghosts. Perhaps it is the feelings of those who originally invested in these places. It was their residence or place of business, but somehow things went bad. Thank you for visiting.
