Abandoned building in rural Virginia

Picture of an abandoned building in rural Virginia, where it’s less expensive to let the buildings set empty than tear them down. The neglected structures are an all-too familiar reminder of the oftentimes volatile economy and real estate market. It makes one appreciative of the things that matter most in life: one’s family, friends, and relationships.
