Shadows on deserted cottage
They're rare but DO exist: dilapidated cottages a block or two south of Lake Simcoe. Soon it will be bought up, hauled away and replaced by a mega home, and the new home fondly called a "cottage" by the owners (a castle by the rest of us).

I am linking to Shadow Shot Sunday 2 HERE.
Out with the old. In with the new.
I LOVE the shadows and light on an angle against the horizontal wood in that first shot.
goodbye, old thing.
Smashing pictures, I love the first one...
ooooo! What a cool old cottage that is full of textures and various states of degradation. Soon to be gone...
I had to laugh at your comment (about new castles replacing old cottages), so true. nice shots.
Oh, yes! Out with the old and in with the new!!! That's one of the saddest I've seen in a while!! Great captures for the day though!! Hope you're enjoying your weekend!!
Wow. The poor old soul. To think that this place was once a home and loved. The caved in roof is a little scary.
I wonder about the owners of this cottage that allowed it to fall apart. Why?? There has to be a story there. Fun shadows on such an interesting building.
I like the dilapidated cottage. I may be weird but there is something beautiful to me in old buildings falling down and out and out ruins.
Ah yes, the first shot is my favorite shadow shot of the day. So, you know Ye Olde Mill Grill in Hingham MA?
good-bye to ages of marvelous stories . . . sigh.
To tear down one or even two cottages is so prevalent - it happens all the time in Southern CT along Long Island Sound. Mega-houses on the water - happens all over the place. Sigh, I'd prefer preservation, but lacking the $$ to maki happen. Nice shadows!
That one is a goner for sure,
Always sad to see an old house falling down.
Oh boy, looks like it's time to bring in the wrecking ball...
I have friends who had a 'cottage' on Lake Simcoe and like you say it was a castle - bigger than my place in the city with all the bells and whistles!
Nice shadows...and too bad you're so right about the mega home that will probably replace it. Whatever happened to the concept of "enough" rather than "more and more?"
That is dilapidated!
Aw how sad. Probably served it's master and mistress well.
Oh dear. One can only wonder how it's been allowed to remain for so long.
It almost looks dangerous. Great capture.
Seen better days.
Dearest EG; Really sad scene, we have trouble of empty houses in Japan now. I myself have to deal with my parents' empty house soon. I was happy to learn the idiom 'Out with the old, in with the new' from your friend :-)
Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend, xoxo Miyako*
Sad to see it wither away. But your images are lovely.

Oh dear! It is a bit of a sorry sight.
Dilapidated is a kind word for the shape this cottage is in. ;)
that is some serious peeling paint in that first shot and you used the right word to describe it. i always laugh when i see the Log Cabins on TV that people have at a lake, i could put my house in their living room
Great detailed shots. I like them.
Also the cottage holds wonderful light exposure! Hope it was replaced by a wonderful home
Oh dear, there's no saving this little cottage, will be interesting to see what replaces it EG.
Deram belas fotografias esta casa a cair.
Um abraço e bom Domingo.
Poor old cottage needs to be rebuilt or taken down.
history is reserved here.
Oh my, looks like some of the places in the desert I looked at that were for sale.
Oh I think the cottage to castles phenomenon is going on all over North America.
At this point, it does look like a wreck.
There is a lot of that going around!
I think the name 'cottage' refers to the location, not the house style. Our 'cottage' was a seasonal residence, but located on a lake. I miss my lake!
