Huatan Treehouse

I found the crumbling ruins of this traditional home in Huātán 花壇 while cycling along Shānjiǎo Road 山腳路 not far from the edge of Changhua City 彰化市. It is not uncommon to see trees growing out of old homes in Taiwan 台灣; the crumbling brick shell affords some measure of protection from the elements as well as relative freedom from competition. I am not entirely sure why this particular tree emerges at such a peculiar angle but it certainly makes for an appealing photograph—it almost looks like a missile exploding out of the ruins of the old brick house.
