Today’s photo album is one of a beautiful, forgotten greenhouse becoming wildly overgrown in Ohio’s countryside.
Otto’s Greenhouse was once a lively business filled with the hurried footsteps of workers, keeping quite consistent for many years. However, the greenhouse when I walked its grounds was quite the opposite. Or was it?
Abandoned greenhouses – or any places that have become incredibly overgrown for that matter – are strange. Not strange for the “life after people” feel and look they have, but another reason entirely. See, I usually find that these places I photograph held much more life in their days before abandonment, but in these cases it’s often the opposite.
Overgrowth consumes everything in its path, pushing up through glass, winding in and out through rusted vehicles and busted window panes. It seems as though nature has brought more life in days of abandonment than it had ever seen during days of operation.
