Woman Takes Pictures Of An Abandoned Home, Zooms In - Gets Big Surprise (Photos)

Leslie, who goes by the name “The Tourist,” is a popular Ontario-based urban explorer and photographer. She scouts out abandoned structures and posts gorgeous photos of them on Instagram.

Leslie started a new photos series in 2015 when she came across a home that would change her life forever, according to Little Things. She walked into the abandoned house and found something she wasn’t at all expecting.

“This is Lawrence,” she said. “He lives in a house I had believed to be abandoned. The driveway is overgrown, the roof is caving in and the interior would lead anyone to believe this land had been deserted. I found him in the living room. He has a hard time getting around so he spends most of his time in there. Alone. He is missing his right eye and has cataracts infecting the left. Even after noticing a stranger essentially helping themselves to his life he was nothing but sweet and kind to me. He was even nice enough to let me take his picture which I will always treasure.”

Leslie said that Lawrence was a “beautiful soul” and that she would come back and visit him. She decided they would have a dinner date.

“The house that stole my heart – this is the exterior of my new friend’s home. Tonight we sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful evening. He explained to me how his injuries started in 2000 when a bull fractured his hip. He told me of his brother's illness and how they have lost touch. He said I was a blessing to him. I told him I couldn’t put into words what he means to me,” she explained.

She continued, “Tonight was the first of what will be many dinner dates with my new friend. Over the course of 3 hours we ate and drank and laughed. I was fortunate enough to hear about his life. His struggles and his triumphs. This truly was one of the best experiences of my life & I can’t wait to share another meal with such a gentle soul.”

In addition to hanging out with her new friend, she got rid of his old fridge, stove, chest freezer and lots of garbage thanks to the help of a local company that donated their services. She took Lawrence to the doctor who said his health was rapidly declining. Lawrence told Leslie about his funeral arrangements and she promised she would be there with him.

“Well it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything about this handsome fella so I figured I’d give everyone following his story an update. After a prolonged stay at two different hospitals after his last stroke, Lawrence is now living at a local retirement home and doing much better. He’s safe and warm and seems to be fairly happy to be around some new people, although I know he misses home.”
