I have a fondness for old building and houses. I try to imagine the people who lived and worked in them and what led to their decay. Great light with this one.

Definitely not taken from a rent-a-house prospect. It´s a pity, it looks like a lovely place.

Imagine all of those family memories... NICE Jola!

For Sale. Lovely 2BR cottage on wooded lot. Formerly owned by Hobbits.
Carinoza26-Oct-2007 05:02
The nice, sunshiny day sure masks the dereliction and somehow makes this one pleasant shot!

Jola, this is a great photo. The cottage needs a rescuer. I really like the porch detail.

looks like a good weekend project. Work on it for a few weeks and you could be living in it once again! Nice shot!

Nestor25-Oct-2007 14:34
A very nice find, this once was some ones pride and joy and today falls apart , make one wonder why such a lovely home was left to fall into dispair.
Excellent image with very nice detail and fits your description perfectly.
Bill Warren25-Oct-2007 14:24
I love how the delicate latice on the porch is still holding up.
Zak25-Oct-2007 13:55
I'll have this house if no one else wants it!

A good find for this challenge. Despite being derelict, the cottage still retains some of its charm.
Tim van Woensel25-Oct-2007 10:34
I totally agree with Ian, LOL! :)
JW25-Oct-2007 10:21
It just needs some new Polish timber windows and it would be fine!!

What a lovely find - great pic
Barry Moore25-Oct-2007 10:13
This is very quaint, even if in need of repair. Did "little red riding hood" live here once?
