Abandoned!

  1. My wife first saw this house near Industry, TX in October, but heavy traffic on the road at the time precluded stopping. I went back today and got her the pictures she wanted. Unfortunately, a cloudy day.
    Hand-held, D2X, 17-35 F2.8 @ 35, 1/500 @ F5, Shutter Priority, Noise Ninja, very light Focal Blade

  2. I can see why she liked this little cape cod house. It is really pretty and would make a nice home if someone was willing to fix it up.

    Was this a panarama?
     
  3. Not a panorama. I just cropped it that way to take out too much sky and the road in front.

    Not a fixer-upper in my mind - notice the roof valley running between the front half and back half of the house - that would be a serious source of leaks, termites and grief. If I remember correctly Norm Abrahms of "This Old House" fame did one like that in the past and they ended up ripping the entire roof off and rebuilding it without an internal valley!

    I know you said unfortunately a cloudy day, but I think the cloudy day adds to the distressed (abandoned) look. I like it!
