Exploring Central Ontario (CANADA)...and beyond
With a shortage of affordable housing one wonders why do we allow buildings to deteriorate like this.They do make for good photograph though.
What a shame EG, to think it was a thriving farmhouse in times gone by.
It does not take long before places go like that if abandoned
Now that the bricks are crumbling it won't last much longer!
This is so sad to see but makes for a great photo op! Enjoy the week ahead.
this is what would happen to an abandoned home here, the vines and weeds would cover it in not time... in the 25 years in our home, our city has changed drastically, there is hardly any dirt left
Out with the old and in with the new, just like the seasons.
It's days are numbered!
Looks like vines and shrubbery could rule the world one day.
great photo material. *sigh*
It certainly isn't going to last long, looking like that.
Nature doesn't take long to reclaim it's territory. Kind of a reminder of how insignificant we humans are sometimes.
Great capture! Sadly, we see a lot of that happening around here, too. Visiting from Rubbish Tuesday #16.Lindy
This must have been beautiful, what a shame! Something really did a number on the roof!!
What a shame such a neat place just left to rot away.
Great photo, Mother Nature wins in the end. :)
This is really so sad.I am sure that it was a wonderful little place.
That's a sad sight, EG!
What a shame.
Another that just makes me so sad...looks like it has been a nice home at some time in the past.
It's hard to see this kind of change - urban sprawl means less green space. Enjoy it while you can!
great capture. i can see the image as a book cover.
Wonderful shot of a lovely vintage farm house ~ such a treasure for OWT ~ musedog and carol (A Creative Harbor)
It is crumbling down.. Poor thing! I do hate to see the big farms disappearing and becoming housing developments..
Even though the building is tumbling down and in terrible decay it makes a nice shot. It's too bad the city is encroaching on the country in your area. I think it happened here long ago. I'm always surprised when I see pockets of farm land.
A terrific shot, but how sad to see so many farms/homes etc. crumbling and disappearing! Hope you have a great new week, EG!!
Same thing happening here in Eastern Ontario. Our population is shrinking while our farms are expanding. So many houses on the market and not many selling.
Pretty sad. Looks like it once was a fairly nice home.MB
Sad and awesome at the same time. I like how the roof is still so brightly colored. Thanks for linking up!
Too bad the house is in such disrepair. Makes for a cool photo though!
What a roof! Tom The Backroads Traveller
Sad but beautiful! Taken back by nature now. Reminds me of houses I have seen in the south...Really nice Tuesday Rubbish post!
So sad and when many people would kill for a home.
It is too bad that it is falling apart, looks like a nice house with the lovely brickwork.
It is the same story here in Bangalore. Old mansions are being brought down and huge concrete tall structures come up in their place. :(
Very sad.. it's a brick home! Just on the stretch of old highway that takes us into the kinda big city I bet there are at least 20 abandoned homes and farms and that is just the ones we can see. Not the ones down the dirt roads. The falling in roof is the last straw I guess!
I hate it when old places are just left to decay. I also don't like the disappearance of the small family farms. Whenever I see places like this, I always wonder who lived there and what the history of the place is. Nice photo!
This is so heartbreaking, on many levels.
