Thank you for the compliment David. I try to keep them as sharp as possible so everyone can explore the image if they choose. It helps to receive good light from Mother Nature.

A beautiful capture of a home that must have been a gem ! It hurts to see them this way, but you have caught the soul for us to enjoy...

Thank you ...

What a wonderful painted lady. One can see the glamour of olden - much better - times.

Well I think they appear to be better from where we sit but infection and disease were difficult to control back then. I think they were a more agreeable times to live in, if you were healthy, wealthy and wise... These chaps were certainly wealthy.

That's true. This does not appear as a shack for underdogs. ;)

Absolutely true Martin. Out here in Nova Scotia, people just seem to move away and leave these large homes. It's astounding and baffling to me. They do present unique photographic opportunities however.

Return visit --- just want to reach through the monitor and fix it !
How people can just walk away - I do not understand.
There are places in North Carolina US where that happens- have not been to see in person, but a friend on Ipernity goes hunting for these treasures. Since they aren't public property, he doesn't say where they are - local Police have been known to tell him of places - but tell him, "don't get caught!"

This is his page:

Yes it is sad to see places like this left to crumble. I'm new to the area so I will try to gather more information on the structure in the summer. There are many places homes like this in Nova Scotia. Sad to see, but I imagine many factors contribute to their condition.
