Several days ago, we went to the nearby town of Milo to get supplies for a temporary archery range that my children begged their grandfather to set up in the yard. Milo is a small rural town in Maine and one of its attractions is an old railroad cutting through the heart of town. The closure of factories in the area lead to the abandonment of the rails.
The hardware store that my husband went to was on the side of the railroad across this train station. So while my husband shopped, I took several shots of the crumbling structure. As it is summer, Queen Annes and other meadowflowers bloomed abundantly. I thought they softened the stark lines of the building and even lent charm to the place.
