Abandonment: Contemporary Home - Mojave, California

Abandoned Home Front - Mojave, California
Close to several other abandoned houses (click here, here and here), this home near the desert town of Mojave stands unique. It's fairly new and modern. It looks like any home you might find in the average southwestern neighborhood. It doesn't seem like a place that would be abandoned.

Yet the home is abandoned. An expanding wind farm is why. And it appears that the occupants moved out in a bit of a hurry because they left things behind. There is a story here, I'm just not sure exactly what it is.  
The Patio - Mojave, California
I think of those who lived here. They bought the land and built a home. There are hopes and dreams that were left behind, as well as memories. The house may have doubled as work, as well--the crane next to the garage providing that clue.

I used a Nikon D3300 DSLR with a Nikkor 40mm AF-S DX f/2.8G Micro lens to capture these photographs. They were post-processed using Alien Skin Exposure 6 software.
