This was taken in 2007. I was driving home from work..when possible and time permitting I would try and get off on country roads for the commute . I came upon a recently burned out building ..infact it had been a matter of days since the catastrophe took place.
I sucummbed to a morbid lure and pulled off to the side of the road camera in hand. The lawn was strewn with personal belongings organized by hasty retreat.It had rained overnight and every thing was damp. I suppose there is an irony in this title……

Great find! Wonderful nostalgic image!!!
Sad to see remnants of people’s lives reduced to this.
Your text makes this a much more dramatic picture, I can almost see and feel the smoke… Very nice
very sad to think of those happy objects in such an unhappy situation, poignant shot
This nicely shows the hasty grab-and-go. It’s quite sad, though. Even without knowing about the fire, it would have had a sad, discarded feeling to it. Good portrayal.
