Odds and Sods 3/5

I first showed this house in October of 2007 and have followed it's demise in many posts inbetween.  There is not much left standing.  It is sinking in onto itself and remains a fascinating study to me.  I check in on each of the old buildings I document from time to time.

Goodness - it is amazing how it's just folding in - like a flan in a cupboard!

It really is subsiding: rather like a shipwreck

It's fascinating to see the decay in that time. but it is sad to see such a fine home end up like this.
not to be restored... ever

In this way the sinking house can survive for some time on your blog - it looks interesting, but also very sad, and there must be combined a lot or a story ...Your project is a fine one!
It has been said, but again this activity of yours will save the memory of these places; it's a pity they cannot be saved in such a young country like yours..
Wouldn't it be serendipitous if you were there to capture its final collapse, Mary?
That's odd to see....like a pop up book; I like the vibrant colours smile
Growing old slowly, if not gracefully... Interesting shot.
It seems that it is sinking Mary!
Fine capture.

This is a fascinating occupation, Mary. I have done something similar for Thursday and Friday this week
You'll be able to run them as a movie if you have taken them all from the same spot, Mary!

I remember it well, Mary.

It seems to be developing "character".
I remember this one from earlier. It's strange that no one has demolished it...
