Sadness

It's the first word crossing my mind when I look at the abandoned house, bare trees and grey sky.

My first word is "how can I get in there and start taking photos".

Babzy said...

Why are they abandoned ?

Olivier said...

My first thought is 'how can I get in there and restore it?'

Sharon said...

It does have melancholy look to it.

willow said...

Beautiful. It would make a super cover for a novel!

cieldequimper said...

Especially as I agree with Olivier, this could be restored to quite some splendour.

Lois said...

Oh no! They look so sad. I hope they get restored.

Anya said...

GREAT tittle
its really sad :(
But your shot is okay !!!!!

VP said...

You are right, but this is an excellent image anyway. Beautiful house and location, it's a pity that it is so neglected.

Jacob said...

It looks like a solid building with lots of character. Wonder why it was abandoned? But I'd guess with some TLC this place could look quite beautiful.

We have lots of old abandoned houses, but most of them are in the woods.

Although, of late there are more and more foreclosures in various subdivisions leaving houses empty and neglected.

This beautiful structure expresses the mind of the designer..but certainly does look sad. The trees growing beside it and the little fence- Very detailed. I agree with Willow too-

Joanne said...

Adoro esta imagen parece tirado de um filme!

Photo Cache said...

oh the stories this could tell. lovely capture.

Tricia said...

It shows lots of character, though!

The house looks sad but has also some charm:)

Jarart said...

It has a mysterious look to it. I wonder how many families called this house their home over the years.

If someone trim the garden
and fix the house,
it will make all the difference.
I feel the possibilities of the house.

Joan Elizabeth said...

I love it ... forget the sadness.

Hope in time it will be restored and come back to its full glory!
God bless you!

joo said...

It's probably the most proper word - such a beautiful building in such a horrible state!

Small City Scenes said...

An empty house or building is always sad. I wonder what the story is about this house. MB

Dina said...

I hope you did not stay sad when you turned away from this scene.

Leif Hagen said...

I'll sound like a Realtor but I think it has a lot of potential - if one had a lot of $$$$ to fix it up! I didn't win the Powerball lottery last weekend. Zut, alors!

Dean Grey said...

Sad but kind of lovely too IMHO.

Esta casa já foi cenário de muito movimento e alegria, nela se fizeram muitos bailaricos (com orquestra e tudo). Era a sede da antiga Sociedade de Sassoeiros. É de facto triste!
