The photographer’s portfolio is worth checking out. I think this particular set is under The Abandoned.

Strangely enough, I’ve been watching shows/videos about abandoned houses and dying rural towns in Japan over the past couple days. Even though I know it to be pure folly, a part of me wants to buy one of these old houses in a quiet town and fix it up.
