Adalbert is a forum for me, to post ephemera, photography, poetry, occasional travel notes, and various spontaneous motions. Cover photo: Parsonage where my great-grandfather spent his early years. Taken near Liegnitz, Silesia, ca. 1870.
The totem pole-like chimney rises from the remains of this abandoned house, in the Columbia River Gorge, on the Oregon side, which I have photographed now and again the past few years. Decades
ago, I knew the dwellers within, as previously described. Sadly, inadvertently or otherwise, someone set fire to the house
sometime in the last year, leaving only scorched walls and a foundation
shell, and exploded reminders of a past life.
The interior of the Indian House, post-fire.
I have previously posted decades-spanning images of this house.
