Ok, now I see, it is a door. So much for the story about windows.
Nice weather, Marilyn!Best wishes. Eva
Hi Marilyn. We are stil lsnowless down here, so I'm getting to experience winter this year through your pictures. Trust all is well.
Thanks, Carsten, Eva, and Hank. I'm glad to let you enjoy the snow without having to shovel it or drive through it!
Once again, I am in awe.
And once again I am delighted to converse with someone who enjoys shots like this and takes them herself!
Hi Marilyn. Just to let you know that I finally tasted snow this winter. I drove up to Woodstock on Friday, and the rain turned to sleet en route.
Snow: I love to look at it; I love to photograph it; when new I'll even eat it or throw it at friends; but I really don't like driving in it.
One good thing about the Quebec City weather was that we didn't have to drive in it. One bad thing was that Friday night, taxi drivers didn't want to drive in it, and a small group of us waited well over an hour at a restaurant. Phone calls were to no avail; finally one of the group schlepped out across the old city and persuaded one to rescue us.
This place still haunts me.
When are you going to break in and take some more photos of this magnificent find?
Maybe I should order some tickets for a play at the Stratford, Ontario, festival. This is far enough away so that we're not likely to make a trip just to visit the farm. But combined with a trip to the theatre ... (If you zoom out on the map, you can see Stratford to the west and north. There's top-quality theatre there from late spring until fall.)
no need to bath, feeling cool.
cheer. Greeting from Malaysia.
Very cool! Thanks for visiting, and greetings from Canada.
Thanks, zacksoccer, for your nice comment, and greetings from Canada (though I was born and grew up in Illinois!).
How tempting Marilyn, to take a peek inside ;>)
I know for certain that my friend from Georgia, MaryAlice, would be through those doors like a rat up a drainpipe.
This photo certainly conjures up food for thought!!
I admit to the temptation, Jim ...
I've been in here, but it's been a few years. Years ago, my commute to work had me driving past daily. The barn is gone now, as is the fence, but the well in the side/back yard still works (hand pump) and saved my butt when my car's radiator sprung a leak on my way home from Woodstock one afternoon! I was able to fill it with fresh, cold water from that well and get myself home!
I have photos from inside the house if you want to see. Just email me with the request. Bear in mind, these are years and years out of date. It looks like an elderly man with a chronic illness lived there until he either died or was moved to a nursing home/hospital/hospice.. likely kidney disease by the types of medications left behind, the hospital-type bed and portable toilet in what was once the front parlor, and the other medical stuff left around. He also seems to have been rather a hoarder, given to keeping empty jugs and bottles and other trash, which was piled up in the kitchen and rear hallways especially. It really looks like no one really cared much about this elderly invalid, and the condition his former home has been allowed to fall into would surely upset him if he were still alive. I hope he doesn't know.
I've driven by recently and noticed that someone has put a new metal roof on, but so far no other signs of restoration/renovation are visible. My work no longer brings me by anymore, so I haven't seen the place since I noticed the new roof back in November 2013-ish. I hope someone takes it on and brings it back to it's former glory. It had to have been a lovely house in it's heyday.
Just passed by this place a couple of days ago. Looks like the property owners tore it down. Lot's empty and has been cultivated for farming. Damn....
