Day 71 - Close Encounters

I've been by this building a number of times and never got a chance to stop. It's relatively famous and just outside Dallas in Royse City. With an overcast day and slight drizzles there was a perfect tone to take pictures of an old rundown building. I took 25 exposures (a few too many) but I wanted to be able to capture the full depth of the scene from the dark and tumultuous clouds to the standing water underneath the house.

Edit:
So, my friend form Germany saw my Facebook posting of this image and shares a building with a similar architecture. After some research, I discovered they are the same design! The building is called a Futuro House. You can read more at Wikipedia or TheFuturoHouse.com
