Hanging by a thread

Do you remember the little old house on the highway that I stop to take pictures of all the time?  After the brutal winter that we endured this year, I was sure that it would be a flattened pile of rubble by Spring, but believe it or not it’s still standing!  Well, sort of standing anyway.  With the weather starting to smarten up, my photography itch is returning, and I just had to stop the other day to snap some shots to share with you.  I feel like many of you are just as fascinated by the story of the little house as I am :). Enjoy because you never know how long it’s going to last.

    Hooray for perseverance! I’d really like to see your 5th image rendered in monochrome. Have you tried that?

    What is the story of this little house? Have I missed that in your posts?

    • It’s just one of those landmarks that everyone in the community has been watching for years. I have lived here for 23 years, and it has been slowly falling down all that time. Everyone watches for it as they drive down the highway, and when it does eventually make the final tumble, I know I won’t be the only one who will be sad to see it go. I’ll try and remember tonight to post the links to my other posts about the little old house. It’s neat to see it in different seasons, and there have even been comments on my blog by people who used to live in it or knew the family who lived in it.

    It’s amazing that a former home could end up in a state like this.

    • It’s sad isn’t it. I often wonder about the people who lived there and the stories that house could tell. I also wonder about who owns it now. Why don’t they just rip it down and clean everything up? Well, it might be because that little old house has become like a famous landmark to our community and everyone would be upset if it was no longer there.

    Such a shame it’s tumbling down, but it does make for some good photos.

    Don’t think I’ve ever seen a shambles of a house so close to collapsing (but not quite).
    Amazing. Keep the photos coming so we can keep up to date with it’s status.

    Wow, it’s sort of collapsed in on itself, that’s amazing that it hasn’t fallen down completely! What a fighter. 🙂

    It’s interesting how it’s collapsing into itself, like a last hurrah. Great shots. 🙂

    Oh that poor little old house! I remember your first posts and how it really looked like a house that could still provide shelter. What a great thing that you have chronicled the changes with the seasons because before long now it will finally totally collapse. 😦

    Great shots Cindy! Looks like it won’t be long now.
