On the way back from the coast, we stopped at this badly damaged farmhouse to search photo opportunities.

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at My-Expressions.com. It is gone now.

Repair does not look to be an option here . .

The ruined house has a certain charm about it. Well captured, Harry :)

Excellently framed and I imagine we will see some of the inside tomorrow.

I love this one. The majesty of the house still standing proudly even though nature is taking over.

The fine shot is a very good example of how nature recently reclaims the places we build and then abandon.

Nature has reclaimed its rightful home. Nice image (and great series, I'm sure)

Looks like this house is just about engulfed by the surrounding landscape!! That chimney will long outlast the rest of the house. I am surprised that the chimney remains uncovered.

This one is beyond repair. Makes a great photo subject, though.

The vines have really taken over! A wonderful old abandoned house.

It is always so sad to see a beautiful building slide into ruin. Very nicely shot.

The rage in England just now is to rebuild old homes and barns and turn them into grand houses. May be someone will do this to this place one day.
