the beauty of decay/

I have been thinking about this for awhile. What exactly is it that I love about these structures when they are being allowed to just fall down naturally. No attempts at resuscitation, just let the wood fall to the earth when it is ready to. A gentle letting go. A decision.
There is a humanness about this shack, isn't there? The gentle lean to the side, the way the roof is coyly hanging down on one side. She used to be a beautiful woman I think...
PS. Super nice article in the Portland Daily about Handcrafted Modern. The third edition is out and about if you haven't got your copy yet.
