An oldie...from 2009


As always, I wonder what happened to the family....


I wish this image had been better, but am showing it anyway so you can see the house from another view.  I bet it was a real nice house in its day.   If I could find it, I would like to see what it looks like now.


Almost like vacant eyes, the windows look out on the world.

Hmmm, ten years on, I doubt there would be much left at all - unless someone took pity on it... Makes a wonderful photograph, yet carrying such - sadness. YAM xx

This poor house. Yes, I always wonder what memories it contains.

C'est toujours triste de voir de belles maisons se dégrader au fil du temps.Ces maisons ont une histoire et pour celle-ci, elles se finit mal. Bonne journée Rose.

I am sure the house had a happy family staying in it and probably they have moved on to another place.

Wow! Those pictures really moved me, because the house is so old and I am too? :)

It must've been a fine house in its day. Sad to see it so neglected.

Ten years later-- I can't imagine that it's doing very well now. Nicely photographed!

Houses like this always get my mind wondering. What did it look like when it was new? Who lived here? Why was the house abandoned. It makes me sad to see houses left like this. It also makes me want to get inside and take a look around.

to me it is beautiful in the same way old rusty trucks are beautiful. I love all 3 photos, these would make great set to hang on a wall. old houses speak to me and these are speaking loudly.... I would love to see them now also...

Looks like nature is taking back its landscape as plants engulf the home! It looks so structurally sound, one does wonder what happened.

This picture shows what used to be. It’s a fine series. It would be interesting to know who used to live here."

It looks beautiful with all those leafless tress surrounding it ...like curtains!!
If the house was a bit vocal, it might have told you a lot of stories!! Wonderful images Rose..I love that window which had only a frame...did you peep inside ?

The house is probably not even standing now.
Looks like it was a real nice house at one time.
Sad that it was left to go back to nature.

I am always fascinated by these abandoned homes. Beautiful details and textures

The forest has approached the old house and offers protection, at least in the summer through its canopy. Yes, even today you can imagine the former beauty of the house.

Neat shots of the decrepit old place.

Old empty houses like this always seem to have a story to tell. If only they could talk.

I love taking pictures of abandoned and run down houses. It makes you wonder who lived there and why they left. These are great images!

This old house looks eerie to me. I wonder if it's abandoned? With a little work and love, I bet it would look really nice.
