1,000 Words VI: Ruins

A ruined building, which I do believe was at one time a church, in Harper’s Ferry, West Virginia.

Every time I see ruins, they intrigue me. There are so many unanswered questions. What caused the structure to be abandoned? Why did a town or city spring up around it and leave it in such a state? Sure, it could be a historical marker, but not all ruins are such. Who used it? Why? What was inside? Do the ruins seems sad, happy, angry, good, or evil? Do they have a soul?

What ruins have you all seen recently? Did they inspire any stories? Ruins always get my creative juices flowing.
