On a backroad between Burlington and Kingston, Ontario, Canada, this abandoned house was a chance discovery. On my yearly fall road trip, as I often do, I was traveling between destinations and, instead of focusing on the road in front of me, I was looking at the houses to my left and right. I noticed an old, abandoned-looking house behind the mailbox that was crammed full of flyers and old mail.
When I stopped my car to take some exterior pictures, a young man came out to tell me that although they were filming a music video inside, I was welcome to enter and take pictures if I wanted.
As I enter, I find the abandoned home to be surprisingly clean; often, the stair railing and newell post are destroyed or missing, but this one appears to have escaped vandalism and graffiti.
I didn’t get the names of the people or the artist, so I'm sorry I can’t share it with you here. The guys inside were filming some sort of rap video when they took a break to let me wander about and do what I wanted.
Anyway, this was a brief break during a long weekend road trip, so I thought it was deserving of a short gallery, so here it is!
The video must have contained footage of burning foam mannequin heads because the stench of burning styrofoam was very strong.
