    Red face Erwins House Of Dolls - December 2016


    Erwins House Of Dolls!




    I first saw this old house on a friends website 3 years ago! when looking up abandoned places in wales, we got chatting and he seemed fairly sure no one had been, now fast forward and many have been before I decided to take a look, crazy how only this year I decided to venture here, considering how many times I took a trip to wales an pushed this back to the line. So with Cunningplan already been and another friend Nakedeye having gone, I seemed to be the last out of the unfortunate group, but then again I had other places an priorities before going here, so that's my excuse anyway








    Luckily enough we have a backstory with this place and worked out a lot more than many may know, Erwin seen in the photograph of her and broken watch, an some textbooks (think I avoided taking the shots of the front) was infact the daughter, an lived here until her family decided to move on, but keeping the land and leaving its contents and such collecting dust, now fast forward and Erwin now owns the land and this old house, her husband I never bumped into thankfully... BUT Erwin we did.

















    What could of been a really awkward situation soon turned into someone's ignorance and our misfortune, yes we got caught, we explained what we was doing, but you just cant reason with someone when they are shouting, so after apologising and trying to explain, "we was only taking photographs" she continued to insult us, telling Cunningplan "hope you break your F***ing leg" as he slipped in mud, an continued to shout abuse, sadly this is the name of the game, especially exploring houses, but she knew why we was there in the end, so not such a bad situation really, but people where caught after I went as posted on here. Weirdly enough Cunningplan was never caught before nor has others, but with so much moved an changed inside this old house before my visit, no wonder she was now suspicious, especially comparing pictures to 3 years ago.

    ANYWAY

    Photographing this place was amazing, with the downstairs contents either stuck as it was or looking like a bomb had gone off, it really brought back why I love doing this hobby, the downstairs had this atmosphere and feeling like "everyone has left" which I somehow fell in love with, while upstairs in one bedroom it seemed like someone had gone missing, so many stories can be revealed from just the downstairs an this bedroom, letters and notes lay tucked against books, dolls and toys some from Disney, the old games I remember playing, mouse trap and of course most children had an etch a sketch! (I remember when mine broke)
    :(





















    After going crazy reliving my childhood, I then entered the other bedroom, this one gave off a much different vibe than the other two, this one just seemed empty and set up, somewhat tainted, but having previously looked at my friends pictures from years ago, the clothes hung up simply remained the same, add one or two dresses, but it was almost accurate, while much stuff had grown legs and walked, none the less I took a few shots, an made my way back downstairs, to marvel at the atmosphere an take in how it was left.























    Well after getting caught and leaving the quickest way off Erwins land, we then decided on some food and to visit some waterfalls anyway I think that's how the day ended ;) cheers for looking everyone! :)
