Perspective of an abandoned town in rural Virginia

Perspective of a corner of an abandoned building's porch roof in the rain 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.
