It's a shame for the house but sometimes Nature should win
In the same vein as Davids posting this week. Why do people let these places go I wonder.
Kay: I have no idea, Brian. It's beyond me. :-(
It's such a shame to see houses like this being left to deteriorate like this. It's one of the things that annoys me when I go back home to Ireland - there are some lovely cottages which have just been left to decay while somebody builds this modern monstrosity.
Kay: I wonder if they'd sell me one of those fixerups (cottages), Bernie. I would love to live in one. I agree with you. There's a lot of craftsmanship in cottages and the like.

I always think its nice to see the inevitable nature breaking back through.
Kay: I agree with you, Padraig. Nature always wins!
Beautifully composed picture Kay. Like the dreamy effect, very lovely landscape too.
Kay: Thank you, John!

Great image, I am just wondering if it would improve under the rule of thirds. I am not sure, that is why I am wondering. I do think that the 2 lighter spots (building and clump of grass in front) do balance.

What this image reminds me of is the universal economy. Someone builds a house, the house gets sold down the line until it is not a sellable proposition anymore. Someone in the end sits with the monkey, so to speak.
Kay: Louis, with the U.S. economy in the state it is, I'm sure someone will want to fix this one up and move in. I can't believe our Govt. Sorry. Don't get me started!

Good shot, Kay. The house with its blank gaping windows looks sad and slightly menacing, almost like it's waiting for something....
Ingrid
Kay: Thank you, Ingrid. This house is a symbol of our economy over here. The Govt dropped the ball. It's a sad looking "house" all right.
