grey garden


For over a year I've periodically passed an abandoned home with a semi-attached shop and greenhouse along Dempster Avenue in Chicago. For over a year I've wanted to photograph it. Finally, this weekend, I did.

The property is aggressively posted with "Private Property" signs, so I was careful to shoot from the sidewalk, through the glass of the shuttered shop.

Behind the glass at least a year's worth of weeds had bloomed and died, without a breeze ever stirring the leaves and debris they left behind.

Here's the slideshow of what I found there »

thanks, guys. :D heather I was shooting long with a macro lens, which always makes for some interesting bokeh -- a Sigma 105mm.
