D/Alphabe-Thursday

 Dilapidated house, Shelburne, Ontario

D is for DILAPIDATED, DECAYED, DETERIORATED

Some of you may remember this old house from when I posted about it HERE. This is what it looks like now.

Almost DOWN, almost DONE

DANGEROUS, eh?

Dilapidated is about the nicest thing you can say for this place; well, other than it makes for a great photo opportunity! I don't think it has long for this world! :)

see you there! said...

Oh, my. Makes you think it will be gone if you blink your eyes.

I look at the ruined house, but great pictures. Yours.

Buttons said...

Oh the stories it could tell. Great shots. B

Jill said...

It is sad but I just love seeing these old place. It sure spurs ones imagination.

Andy said...

Great find! I love photographing abandon places.

Sandra said...

just like our human bodies, it is just sitting there and getting older and older until it is collapsing in on itself. i did go look at the other post, and there is a big change since then... sad but beautiful photos of it.

Stephanie said...

A sad house indeed. Would be interesting if anyone is inspired to do a painting of it before it completely falls apart, still has a lot of character. Great capture!

poor old thing. :)

Judy said...

Wow, it looks like the long winter was too much for it.
Sad when you think about it. Once it held a family and the laughter of children echoed off its walls. Now it sits broken and forgotten.

Judy said...

Oh so sad! You got some great shots of it.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Oh no, I do remember it from a while back EG, it did look as if it was going to cave in any minute..what was the time span between each set of photos?

It seems once they begin to degrade, it really accelerates. I hate to say it, but it would be safer if it fell down.

RedPat said...

Wow - such a shame!

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

What a nice find. Darn near looks like a tree fell right across the center. I've seen a lot of dilapidated houses but never one folding in upon itself as this one is.

Janie said...

Great photos of this dying structure. I wonder who lived there and when, and why the place was abandoned.

Hilary said...

Poor, sad thing. Somebody once loved it enough to build and live in it.

poor house...

LONDONLULU said...

I cannot get over the degree of dilapidation! What a find - and incredible shots.

edenhills said...

Oh, how sad.

The Furry Gnome said...

I think I recognize this! Roof just fell in the past year or so I think. Up here it's barns that collapse or get torn down. I really have to start documenting some of them before they disappear.

lissa said...

looks like it may just fall any moment. nice capture.

hope you have a great day.

Randy said...

Too sad.

Indrani said...

OMG! Hope the owners are fine.

kelley jensen said...

Wow, that building looks dangerous

llandudnopictures said...

Looks like it finally caved in, the original shot reminds me of a Haunted House fairground attraction!

Scudds said...

Sad but, great photo opportunity :)

Have a lovely weekend!

Poor old house..:(

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

Poor old thing, it looks like I feel most of the time....

fredamans said...

Sad, no one loves it anymore....

myfluffybunnies said...

Eek. I bet it's got some great wood that could be salvaged and reclaimed!

mrs. c said...

A great photo...would make a great book cover for a story about neglect. I would have to get in there and see what could be salvaged and repurposed. I'm that kind of girl!

Lmkazmierczak said...

Sue said...
