Great pair of old Americana -- nicely done.
Greetings from California, Bruce
a place for Stephen King to find inspiration, if he ever lacks any...
il puff and il puff
. . . in the eye of the beholder . . . Americana, fantasy horror, or nursery tales?
Love your combined comments! Thanks, Bruce, Pop', Happy . . .
If nobody wants this house, I arrive.
I am not afraid and I love nature Pennington. Ilda
You are in luck, Ilda! This is at the edge of an abandoned Christmas tree farm -- which is for sale. Or at least was when I took this photo. You can see the cleared and farmed rectangle of land clearly in the map view. The previous photo of the old barn is on the same property. It would be a great place for enjoying nature -- you can see in the map that it is against a small mountain, surrounded by woods, edged by a brook, and not too far off to the left in the map you can see a small lake.
Nice and sad photo a lot of memories has must be left behind in this sad little house, best regards from Sydney, cheers Girolamo...
I agree wholeheartedly, Girolamo! It makes me think of the old song, Leaving the Land.
It's time to go, Jenny
No need to close the door
What if the dust gets in the house
It doesn't matter any more
You and the dust have been at war for far too many years
Now the war is over Jenny dear.
Leaving the land, Leaving the land
Leaving all I've ever been and everything I am
Leaving the land.
Remember when I brought you here
Those long bright years ago
For all that time you've been my heart
And this land has been my soul
The long bright days are over now but still the heart beats on
But Jenny dear the soul is gone.
Drive quickly down the track
We'll never see what lies ahead if we keep on looking back
Behind is just an empty house
Old memories and ghosts
And our small dream gathering dust.
If you really want to shed a tear and put yourself into a melancholy, wistful, mood, listen to Jean Redpath singing it!
Very nice shot and composition of this old building.
Nice title also!
I think, when things abandoned join natural, maybe, it becomes a kind of beauty.
I love this picture. :))
