Falling In

I have to go back here and take more photos.  It was intriguing and deserves more time than I had today.

Yikes! That's a topsy-turvy structure. It has definitely seen better days.
Mary MacADNski: Yes, and I can't wait to go back with batteries. I had forgotten my battery charger at my dad's when I was visiting and have been in camera withdrawal.
WoW! WoW! Awesome, Mary! But it is an optical effect or it is that it is being callendo really? Buff! Great shot!
Mary MacADNski: It is a natural photo. It has no optical illusion but I don't know the word "callendo".

Es una foto natural. No tiene ninguna ilusión óptica pero no sé la palabra "callendo".
I trust you didn't go inside. Great shot.
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Michael. I didn't go inside and won't be.

It looks like a house that has folded up on itself. Very nice image...powerful.
Mary MacADNski: It is doing just that, Kay, folding up on itself.

Now THAT would be the perfect Haunted House for Halloween, Mary!!!
Mary MacADNski: Reminds me.... I should check this out on a full moon night.

Agree with Ginnie, all it needs is a pumpkin and a black cat! Great capture, Mary smile
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Coleen. There are probably a couple of raccoons ans skunks living in it too.

You wonder what it was like when people lived in it. Nice one Mary..
Mary MacADNski: It's right on the shore. It would probably have been nice.
Best be quick before it falls down!
Mary MacADNski: LOL Now that you say that, maybe I should go today!

You can fill a couple of films here. Those windows in the left face, do them each separately - the reflecting non-reflecting contrasts will be important.

Just don't go inside.

Great fun picture. It reminds me of a movie 'Mine, yours and ours' Guy with 8 children marries woman with 10. Once they are done with a house it can look like this.
Mary MacADNski: I can't wait. Will give it my best "shot". I certainly won't go inside.

Mary is this house on a landslide or has the structure just collapsed. Nice capture and agree it would be great for the ghosts and gouls for halloween.smile
Mary MacADNski: It has collapsed, Tracy
Intriguing. Could look at this photograph for hours and still feel I am missing something, something more to gain. This photograph deserves one word ... POWERFULL. :o)
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, PitwallAntix, I hope to get back there soon.
This cannot be real!! it looks like you have joined 2 photos together. What is the history behind this? Well captured
Mary MacADNski: I don't use photo manipulation. This is just an old abandoned building in a field exactly as it is. I hope to get it on a blue sky day next time.
I was sure of that ! Too much music, to much photo and never time to work for the house smile
A beautiful shot really smile
Very unusual !
Mary MacADNski: LOL Very funny! It's not that bad yet. Thanks, Zebigleb

Welcome to the house of the Monster family, great capture Mary, the colour of the wood, I wonder have gorgeous it would have been just after it was build
Mary MacADNski: It's large and was probably nice in it's day.

very dramatic perspective...the building looks just like it will implode in the next instant.
Great shot Mary, but wear a hard-hat when you go back.
Mary MacADNski: I'm hoping to get there soon - on a blue sky day.
Wow......Ok I missed this shot. (busy making a living.) I would love to spend a day with this. Very cool. Great house, what does the other side look like? (serious, still standing? amazing.
Mary MacADNski: I'll be putting up other shots in the weeks to come. The other side has no roof, partly. It's a little dangerous to walk around. I stepped on a few boards that were overgrown and luckily did not step on a nail. It would be a distinct possibility.
I am so jealous that you live near this...this is awesome. Have you taken a peek inside throughthe windows to see what's going on there? This house should be in a movie...
Mary MacADNski: There are some other views of this house. One of the back, i posted earlier this week. It's hard to get really close to as there are boards under the grass that have rusty nails in them. I did try but kept getting tripped up. One would not want to step on a rusty nail. I did get several shots though.

like some of the others have mentioned this is a gold mine for image taking, the place looks haunted, very glad I've seen it, top shot. mal
Mary MacADNski: Better from the front, I think. It has such a personality. With your style, you could really do something with this image. I can just see the ghosts!!!

What a great place. I'd love to go in and poke around.
Mary MacADNski: It wouldn't be at all safe I will even be surprised the wind will get it before winter is over. Here's another view that might explain why. It truly is falling i.

Great shot. Amazing building. I want to see it just before a storm with an angry sky.
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Lynn. If you check out my archives I have quite a few shots of this building from different angles.

Not one straight angle there but still standing smile
Mary MacADNski: I have photographed it from all sides. It is an interesting building.

i love old houses, they have such character. This is a great shot!
Mary MacADNski: There are many photographers who go to this house. I have seen it on postcards.

Once very nice building in very bad shape. Nice photo but kinda sad to see it thou. Hopely the light is better when you go back, this one's very dull. And then again, it fits the subject perfectly. Very ambivalent. You have a great week and happy TC!
Mary MacADNski: Every time I am there it seems to be a grey day. I even left here on a blue sky day to go there and it turned cloudy by the time I got there, Every year I hope to get there on a blue sky day.

Oh boy, your house looks even more broken than my house. But your house has been really beautiful in old days !!!! smile
Mary MacADNski: It would have been a very nice house fifty years ago.

What a wonderful old house!
Mary MacADNski: It is a great old house that only photographers get any use from now.
Wow, what a great old house! Nice find!
Mary MacADNski: This house is probably one of the most photographed houses in PEI - other than the Ann of Green Gables house.
There has been quite an evolution in two and a half years Mary!
Mary MacADNski: Yes, and it won't last much longer.
