Black & White Sunday: Traces of the Past

This home was built in the 1920’s, in a rustic resort for working-class families to escape from the city to the country in the summer. It has fallen into disrepair from the elements, but someday may be returned to its former charm. The sides are shingled with roof shingles which is something I had never seen before on a house.

  1. The shingles on the sides are news to me too. The house is quite charming even in this state of abandonment. It would be a shame to let it tumble down. I like your elegant shot. I think that the monochrome in this case presents it better than colour would. It evens the tones and therefore the neglect may appear less visible, I guess. 🙂 Thank you for joining me again. Some busy weeks are ahead of us, but it is good to have some sort of creative outlet, isn’t it. Have a good week, Lisa!

    • Thanks Paula- I believe this house and the others on the site will be renovated at some point- they are waiting for money from the state. There are small cabins on the land used for Girl Scout camp in the summer so it is nice to know this camp ground is in use once again. Have a good week!
