Your Decay series could be used some day to catalog structures that disappear over time.

It is such a series that you, like the Super Bowl in the USA, are challenging our ability to keep up with Roman numerals.

what a house, what a tragedy to see its disintegration.

Again graffiti leaves its ugly mark!

Sharon said...

It is so sad to see such a grand place go to ruin.

Yes, it is sad to see the decay and ruin of such a lovely old house! There seems to be more and more of it everywhere these days! Hope you have a great weekend, JM!

It looks like it would have been a magnificent house in it's heyday JM, what a shame!!

Mama Zen said...

Beautifully shot, but so sad!

RedPat said...

What a beautiful structure - hopefully someone will save it!

Na primeira foto a casa está tão linda, com um ar de mistério, cheia de aposentos, eu gosto. Já na segunda foto fica claro o ar de abandono. Lamentável, pois foi uma bela casa.

Gunn said...

I hope someone with lots of money and who also want to keep the architecture and the garden ...... will move in soon.

Beautiful images!
But also a sad situation.

What a shame, so much carelessness and stupidity. The house is really beautiful...

You've captured a gorgeous picture!

Irina said...

I am so sorry that it is dying. And I would like to cut the hands of that stupid teenagers off.

Woody said...

Wow, you can imagine how it looked when it was cared for. I'd love to go inside, a roof helps stabilize the walls, so I'd probably skip the inside.

The photo at the top still shows a lot of elegance and charm.

Jack said...

This was a beautiful house. I hate to see the graffiti and damage.

Al said...

Great shots, but it's sad to see such a beautiful house decaying like that. There must be some incredible stories there, childhoods and maybe entire lifetimes lived there.

Joan Elizabeth said...

The top shot didn;t look at all decayed but by the time I saw the second I realised it really was.

ladyfi said...

It's such a lovely building that I had to look hard to find the decay.

Leif Hagen said...

Very, very disappointing DECAY! She was a real beauty in her prime!

Randy said...

It could be so beautiful.

Pat said...

So sad - such a beautiful building.

Halcyon said...

This is some decay. It's quite a shame, b/c it looks like a beautiful home. :(

T. Becque said...

Oh, I usually like graffiti in photos, but this just helps to ruin this beautiful building.

The top photo is a maze of twists and corners, I really like the angle you chose. It really takes the second shot to realise the house is only a ruin. I hope it gets renovated one day, it is a truly beautiful piece of architecture.

How sad. One can see it's once upon a time grandeur. MB

Always a pity to see elegant structures left to ruin.
