Abandoned farmhouse

Posted by
Harry (Apex, NC, United States) on 24 March 2020 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

this place was beyond repair. the walls were bare to the studs and many of the floorboards were missing. when the wind blew, loose sheets of the tin roof rattled and clanged. Not many more storms before the whole thing collapses.

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

It must have been an impressive house in its day. The clouds add the feeling of doom.

I like your composition of keeping the tree in the picture with the old house. It's certainly not going to last long.

Bien que dans un état de délabrement très avancée, on peut voir encore combien cette maison a dû être belle !
Ton noir et blanc et plus que parfait, cette composition mérite un spotlight !
Bonne journée Harry

A nicely-framed shot with the winding drive in front! I love how the landscape is starting to engulf the house with the overgrowth. Great find!
