Lovely Old Cabin

Posted by

I find myself magnetically attracted to old buildings regardless of the quality of the architecture. Although, I must say that I am envious of you who live in places with such marvelous old (sometimes ancient) architecture. Old buildings help to put our own lives in perspective.

For us in the United States, this is a great day!

I, too, love old buildings... the character, the textures, the lives that had thrived there. Nicely done, Jack!

@amy: Amy, my favorite are old barns, especially those that are falling in.

Ah ah ... Is it your second house Jack ?

@Lydie et Roland: It wouldn't be a bad get away. It's in a beautiful area, next to a Nature Preserve.

They make wonderful places for adventure and fabulous images, although this one looks like the porch roof is supported with 2 x 4's.
I enjoy too capturing the old wood and rustic pieces of old structures.
Besides being an incredible day in history I feel hopeful for our country.

@Barbara: I feel more hopeful even than when Jack Kennedy was inaugurated; I was 25, and about to go through the turbulent 60s living in the Bay Area of California. It was an exciting time. But today certainly trumps that. We, and the whole world, are so desperate for leadership.

I like your crop on this image. Detail in the tree and shadows on the broadside of the structure, but still giving us a bit of detail of what lies within. Nice work.

The composition and detail is delightful, a photograph that beckons me inside to explore this wonderful old structure. Superbly observed, Jack

@EYES WIDE SHUT: Paul, Anyone who spends as much time in this country as you do is certainly a fellow citizen on this historic day.

Steve Rice from United States

A lovely old tree too. A pleasing composition. Well done.

Looks like that cabin has seen better days. Although, I'm with you, I do have an appreciation for older architecture!

More beautiful and more romantic than "my" cabin... I like the moss on the roof.

John, ta petite maison dans la forêt est superbe, si tu viens un jour en France, je te prête mon chalet et tu découvres tout ce que tu veux, ça te dirait ?? Ce serait une superbe rencontre entre passionnés de photos ne plaisante pas, c'est en toute amitié.

@Alivia: Thank you, Dane, that would be lovely. Jack

Evelyne Dubos from Le Mans, France

J'aime cette vieille cabane dans la foret et les marques de la nature qui reprend ses droits...
And thank you so much for your kind words Jack, they are a great comfort for me... :-)

I like old buildings, too. It is a shame to see them in such disrepair, but they do make for some good photo opportunities.
