June 2013

Continuing my recording of the end of life of this building, I am surprised that there is not really a lot of change since my last post of it in July last year. There were lots of changes between that and the one before, in November 2011.

It is resisting the advance of Time, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: After the rear caving in a couple of years ago, it is not seemingly changing much.

One day you'll pass & find it's all matchwood Mary..
Mary MacADNski: It is getting quite grown over in front of it.

It looks as if they built this house on quicksand 'Mary. Did you give it a little push to help it?
Mary MacADNski: I don't get very close as a rusty nail might curtail my summer - or life.

Oh no! What an end of life! Breaking down like matchboxes or a house of cards!
Mary MacADNski: I have been following it for many years.
I remember those images, Mary - and yes it does seem time has stood still. I like the really low perspective here!
Mary MacADNski: It is on a rise and all the frontal shots are from this area.
It looks like a haunted house like this
Mary MacADNski: The ghosts can easily get out.
It is hanging on Mary; but only just
Mary MacADNski: After the back collapsed inward a couple of years ago, it seems to have slowed - for a while.

Oh dear; so sad to see. I wonder if these were family homes at one time?
Mary MacADNski: It would have been a large farmhouse at one time.
it seems to be losing the will to hold on. quite right you are, not much of a change in the two images
Mary MacADNski: There was a major collapse of the back wall a few years back but not much since then.
You'll have to keep going back until it is just a huge pile of old timber Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Or until I am an old bag of bones.
There are some examples of modern archtitecture that look just like this! smile
Mary MacADNski: Sad to say, I know what you mean.

Looks like it's hanging on in there
Mary MacADNski: Yes. I have been following it for quite a few years.
Great subject nicely shot, no doubt good in mono also
Mary MacADNski: Some shots I have look like mono but are not. They are the earliest ones of the house at the beginning of my archive and it was a very grey day. I like them for that aspect. They look like they are decoloured.
Amazing to see how resisting it is Mary!
Mary MacADNski: I think the collapse of the back end a couple of years ago created a brace for the front.
There's a nail fallen from the top of the right hand gable, Mary. Surprised you didn't notice it!
Mary MacADNski: The fallen nails are why I don't venture any closer.
Another splendid angle on this old ruin Mary... i've been following it since 2011... it hasn't changed as much since last year....petersmile
Mary MacADNski: Yes, you're right.
