I know different people have very different feelings for what is attractive in a photo so we’re all allowed a little quirkiness. One of my quirks is a fondness for old dilapidated buildings like this one:
Doing geodashing gets me out into a lot of middle-of-nowhere and so I encounter a lot of abandoned buildings, sometimes wondering what purpose they once served, or like this one (in central Iowa), why it’s all by itself, nowhere (not in a town). It doesn’t really look like a gas station (which are common, in nowhere) and it’s not a house, so maybe it was the old-timey equivalent of a convenience store. The young tree in front kinda spoils the shot but I wasn’t going to chop it down to improve the composition.
Every now and then while examining a building like this some person comes out of unseen nowhere to question what I’m doing. After I convince them I’m not going to damage their precious building often I get the story of its history, like the drain pipe manufacturing plant I encountered in nowhere Ohio. It was deep in Trumpistan and the owner was convinced imports had driven it out of business, but I’ve seen enough of the much higher-tech, much more cost effective plastic piping (on large rolls) that can be installed by a single person operating one machine in a day whereas the old tile pipes took a whole crew many days. Sorry, it wasn’t foreign competition (although possibly that commonplace (in farm country) plastic drainage pipe is made outside the USA), it was superior more cost-effective technology.
