A chimney erodes as the bricks slowly break loose. This house rots in the desert in Lund, Utah. You can still find furniture and personal belongings littering this old decrepit ruin as if the family got up and left everything 20-30 years ago. The desert continues to gnaw what’s left. While I was photographing the empty ruin wind would sandblast the house sending particles through smashed broken windows. I listened as the wind wailed as an ancient ghost in the empty roof rafters. A slit in the rafters revealed a stark blue turquoise sky.
