Are you afraid of dark? Do you believe in witches? Do you see ghosts? Do you have experienced any paranormal stuff? Do you sleep with the lights on? Me neither. But houses like these have attracted me for a long time. What do you think when you see little houses like these? Places like this one totally scare me. A lot! But I like it a lot too and I think some of another people actually do too, so it's a great way to spend a lot of films and feel a little bit scared.

These little houses are located in Taubaté’s rural area, which is a very large area with several farms and rural properties. Always have a great spot to shoot. When I bought my first car I always drove to these abandoned places to clear up my mind or try to do some weird movies. Anyway, these places look like a set for a horror movie, a la Blair witch. The houses are in ruins and very depredated but it looks great with the tree on the background in the winter. Maybe they were residences for farm workers who lived and worked for one great land owner or something similar. But now they are empty and waiting for your lomosafari. Get your cameras, your ghostbusters paraphernalia and come to Taubaté’s rural area to see the little old houses that really look like from a scary movie. And keep your lomos on. How to get there: From Taubaté’s downtown go to Quiririm district, so enter the farm area in the middle of that great rice plantations. If you don’t get lost on the dirt road you can see theses lost little houses. Quite an adventure!
