Greensboro Daily Photo is part of the city daily photo community that started with Paris Daily Photo. The first of every month, there is a theme for our group and June's theme is "the beauty of decay." We're supposed to find something decaying and share it with the participating cities around the world. Our contribution is this old house in rural Guilford County in Summerfield. At one time 7501 Shadyside Drive was a charming old farmhouse. Today, it is a house with discarded furniture on the front porch and a mountain of heaven-knows-what on the back.
The sign on the front door reads, "We believe in angels." The house next door has a bright yellow hummer in the driveway and a happy guard dog in the back. Maybe their guardian angel already arrived. Perhaps, when they least expect it, someone will come along and transform 7501 Shadyside, returning it to its original splendor. More than likely, the property will be converted to something else. Time will tell; it always does........ Right now, we could sure imagine a glider, a glass of lemonade, and a few friends to sit with us on this decaying porch, tracking lightening bugs as they rise from the earth.
