Abandoned House Interior with Cactus and Adobe Mud
A few weeks back, I stopped in Cuervo, New Mexico. It’s a ghost town right off of US Route 40 in eastern New Mexico. The town was thriving just fine until Route 40 was built right through the middle of town, and that pretty much wrote the end for this little town.
It’s a great find for a ghost town; so if you’re coming through New Mexico, you may want to stop for a look. There are a lot of buildings to explore and almost all in disrepair, just like a ghost town should be. You can go inside some of the buildings, which is really interesting.
I took some photos in Cuervo, but the ones I liked the most were the detail shots. The one in this post was the interior of house that had been empty, I’d guess since about mid last century. I was attracted to the cactus that grows from the top of the house, and now reaches down into what was the interior. I also liked the wall with the green paint, and the adobe mud bricks that were coloring things red and making that wonderful inverted V shape design.
I just thought it made for a pretty cool image. (:
