Monochrome Madness / Photo A Day

No Trespassing

This old, dilapidated building is located on Oklahoma State Highway 91 close to Lake Texoma’s Denison Dam. We’ve driven this highway several times in the last few months in order to check Lake Texoma water levels.  The building always seems to catch my eye.  It’s almost covered with brush, bushes, weeds and trees; but I decided to try for a photo anyway.  Even though, the “No Trespassing” sign is probably there to keep people safe; I like to think it also shows optimism.  Just maybe, the owners had a dream to come back at some point.

Texas State Highway 91 runs from Sherman, Texas through Denison to the Denison Dam and on into Oklahoma (where it becomes Oklahoma State Highway 91). The Texas part is also known as Texoma Parkway for much of its length. Since the water flowed over the spillway at Lake Texoma on May 24, 2015, the Texas side of Highway 91 has been closed due to road damage from the floods.  You are still able to get to the Denison Dam by using Oklahoma State Highway 91.

Do you ever wonder about the old buildings that you pass?
