When you mention to someone that you’re going to the beach, I’ll bet a few things come to mind. Huge expanses of sand, relentless crashing of waves and of course plenty of sunshine. I feel that when you show someone beach photos that were taken at night, you somewhat break that preconceived image. I enjoy bringing these other-worldly images to people to let them experience something new to them.
I’m also fascinated with old and abandoned structures. Knowing that they served a purpose, and for some reason it has dissolved away, places a bit of a mystery into the story. I love this old house on the beach though. It’s so far away, and difficult to get to. You are surrounded by nature that is slowly reclaiming the land. Can you imagine being able to wake up at night to a midnight sky that’s flushed with stars and celestial objects?
Leaning and collapsing, there isn’t much time time for this old building. It’s been witness to thousands of sunsets and sunrises. It has met coastal storms head on, and provided some safety to the local wildlife. It was a place called home too.
As you can see above shot from 2020, the house was in a bit better of condition. It still was not OSHA compliant by far, but it was standing up straight. I’m sure with it’s location on a beach that there isn’t much time left for this to remain standing in some form.
