Yes, Joke, it could definitely be a good house with a little word...or a lot :) Thanks for enjoying this!

Hi Silvy, yes, I do know that you like the abandoned places. There's something really interesting about them that draws me in these days, I'm glad you liked this one. Yes, I am fine and I hope you are too. Thank you for thinking of me.

Tonia, thank you and I'm glad you liked the sepia as well

Time to settle Kyle??

I think we all have this same inner need to be longed for. Poor building ..... It doesn't look as though it's chances are too good at this point.

I'm curious if this was actually a house, or a warehouse or some type of business? It doesn't really look like a house from this particular shot, or maybe it's just the angle. It looks so long and narrow, and the roof and walls look more like a business than a residence.

Regardless, I think it's a very appealing, moody capture of this dark and lonely structure.

Happy afternoon to you, sweet friend!

Always rockin'

haha..It was a Joke, Joke :)) I meant in photography-wise! :D

Mary Alice, yes..we all indeed do have that inner feeling to be longed for. Chances definitely slim... but to be photographed! That is something else! I long to come back to this house and take a picture from another angle. :)

Yes, this was a house. From the angle I took it, I revealed some of its longness. You can't really see it from here, but in the front of the house underneath that collapsing front porch there is a front door between two windows. Now that I look at it differently it does look like a warehouse. Back when these kinds of homes were built, they were often very long. Averaging about 30ft wide and usually over 50 feet long. Since you live in an old 1920's home you can get the idea about the length versus the width, but this one here was much longer than most of the ones I see. But yes, it could still pass as a warehouse or an old business!

Thank you for enjoying this moody shot! I appreciate your kind words very much.

Happy evening to you!

Always rockin' as well,

Love it Kyle always like to see the old buildings ..Marion

Kyle Wolff on April 15, 2010

Thank you Marion! I am glad you could appreciate this one.

Thank you sincerely, Marija! I'm glad to know that you liked it so much as to give it a Yellow star and a Best of! Yes, it may take some travelling, but it is fun to do. I'll be looking forward to your shots of these old souls.

Warm regards,

Kyle, great picture of a structure soon lost to the tooth of time. It is great to see these things saved , at least visually in photographs. Great job and thanks for sharing. Best wishes/Harri

Kyle Wolff on March 22, 2011

Thanks, Jasper! Glad you liked it :)

Thanks, Harri! I totally agree with you on seeing them saved in photographs. I have a picture of an old farm house that was recently torn down. I'm glad I took a picture of it before it was gone because it was a house I really liked. I'm so glad you liked this shot, and thanks for the kind compliments and for the visit :)

Best wishes,
