rt 30, heading towards scapoose

on rt. 30 north of portland is a 4 story mansion built on the side of a hill. the person who built it lives in a small front house. he has been working on the construction of this mansion off and on for 20 years...there it sits, falling into disrepair. i have been thinking about what "abandoned" means. it sort of implies a former tenant. in this case, what is abandoned are the builders hopes and dreams for this space.

this image was shot in a small alcove facing west. the stuff deteriorating off the walls is insulation...the model is betsy. :)
