Is that tar-paper over wooden shingles, Mary?
Mary MacADNski: The ridge cap makes me think it is a thin metal over the shingles but I'm not sure of that. Tar paper is usually dark.
I like this... great find! Thanks for the golden hour calc!
Mary MacADNski: I like seeing the old buildings as they decay.
This is a wonderful image Mary... i'm sure that these walls could tell a lot of stories....petersmile

Thanks for the link to the Golden Hour... i was surprised when it opened right near our place... and if you look at last few pictures you will know that i've got the evening golden hour figured out grin
Mary MacADNski: If walls could talk... Yes, everyone is surprised at that. It is the location of the server I would expect. Cool, eh?

Somebody has just walked away from this place haven't they. The Golden Hour link is interesting, thank you
Mary MacADNski: Probably the kids moved off to Toronto 60 or so years ago and the parents were left to themselves but of course, who knows?

So, for Amsterdam the Golden Hour starts at 21:10 tonight! That's fun, Mary.

In the meantime, I'll drink to retirement, no matter what it looks like! smile
Mary MacADNski: It begins 20:21 here. Sunrise 4:41, sunset 21:46 Cool eh.
I will surf to that site asap
Mary MacADNski: Hope you liked it.

Very interesting Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Home to many living things still, I presume.

an interesting togetherness of these two different houses- but the abandoned, destroyed one has a golden, magic door!
Mary MacADNski: Now I am wondering why there is one door closed.

Thank you for this information that is totally new to me, and the Golden Hour in my home town was indicated.
Mary MacADNski: It has sunrise and sunset too. Very informative. If I could watch tides from here too, I would have it all.
This must have been a fine homestead in its day, Mary. The golden hour link is very interesting. Thanks for posting it.
Mary MacADNski: You're welcome. Many old places like this exist in the countryside.
Retired and retiring - a lovely shot Mary; although a shame to see the properties abandoned
The calculator is good; even opens up in my location smile
Mary MacADNski: Cool calculator, yes. Lots of these places around.
I have bookmarked the site in case we ever get a golden hour
Mary MacADNski: We finally have sun. It will rain again tomorrow then it is sun through the weekend as far as they know. I am getting pruny and remember you fellows last year.
Lots of photo opp's here, Mary.I wonder what the story is behind its desertion. Thanks for the link.
Mary MacADNski: No idea what the story is. I have taken shots here many times but never got closer. An old lens got a bit closer.
Sad to see old houses falling in to disrepair. Very clever link, it defaulted immediately to where I live, lot's of sites do that, I'm not sure I really like my computer being interrogated behind the scenes like that, I would prefer to choose whether I pass on that sort of information.
Mary MacADNski: It is only to your server, not your location, I would think.
They look ripe for renovation, Mary smile
Mary MacADNski: A little overripe, I think.

Is this the beach where you were this weekend smile As always, I wonder about the lives that were lived here.

PS interesting about the golden hour.
Mary MacADNski: No where near the beach. We were everywhere, even tomorrow's location, which i THINK YOU LIKE.
Wonderful image Mary!
Thank you for the tip.
Mary MacADNski: Much obliged.
Always wonder the history and story behind abandoned building like this. Nice image. The film 'Days of Heaven' 1978 is remembered for the harvest sequence shot at the magic hour, or golden hour
Mary MacADNski: I was looking at a bunch of prints that were of harvesting during this time as well. They were beautiful. I want to paint that colour.

House on the left is saying to house on right, I see what lies ahead for me wink
Mary MacADNski: They have been partners for a long time, house and barn.

They certainly have seen better days. Such a shame that they have got like this.

Thanks to the link to the golden hour website; it knew my location without me doing anything! I have an app on my iPhone which will show me on a map the position of sunrise and sunset for any location, also moon rise and set, too.
Mary MacADNski: This one does all that too. I am wondering if the golden hour is the same as the blue hour.
Interesting link, Mary. Good shot of the old farm.
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Graeme.
Still has so much beauty in it through your photo.
Mary MacADNski: Thank you for stopping in. I love capturing old buildings in our rural environment. - Cuidado
