Flowers—Lines—Ice

Well, it does say “No Trespassing” but…

I don’t know if I can resist this one. Plus, I’m a pretty good climber (if you know what I mean). 😉

  1. Ah, the tones and the stone! No, you can’t resist the climb… I love the processing here. I hope you can see inside. Take a crowbar and pry off one of those plywood boards… Haha. Look at that deliciously rusted roof! 🙂 I wanted to build my final house like this, sort of. In my head, it was a straight-up, European-looking house. The closest we get here are those stone houses in New England. I’ll post my little clay toy house that I dreamed of building.

    • I’ve actually considered the crowbar, and may bring one along. Do post your little clay house.

  2. Love this. Perfect light.

    • Thank you, Mike. I really do hope to get back there and figure out how to get IN! 🙂

  3. Beautiful! I love the steps in the right side, they make me wonder where they lead.

    March 7, 2013 at 7:41 pm

    • Thank you, Melanie. Yes, I find those steps very interesting, too.

  4. Tell it to the judge, and let us know where to send the metal file. 🙂 Beautiful.

    • 😀 I love this comment. Let’s hope it doesn’t go that far!

  5. What a gorgeous shot…l love what you’ve done to it, and the colours are great:-)

  6. Well? What are you waiting for? Get in there and explore–and share!

  7. Beautiful photo. I love old buildings. I’m always sure when it says no trespassing that there is someone hiding in the bushes to nab me. 🙂

    March 8, 2013 at 12:59 am

    • Ha ha ha! It’s funny, I’m not worried someone’s going to nab me; I’m more worried that someone’s going to call the cops on ME!! 😀 😀

  8. Beautiful sky, beautiful sunlight was beautifully captured.
    Still, I feel a strange heavy air. —– ? ? ?
    I haven’t figured it out yet, whether it was loaded by your psyche
    or the house is possessing something ?

    • So, so interesting, Yoshi-sensei. I’m fascinated by this comment. I’ll be thinking more about it. We’ll see if you have the same impression if I’m able to return to the house and get inside to take more pictures, as I hope.

      • Place may not physically harm you, but I wouldn’t go in.
        Because there might be a case it could violates the peace there.
        To keep my own peace, I wouldn’t break the other’s.

        March 11, 2013 at 1:54 pm

        • Hmmmmm. Still more thought-provoking. Thank you for this, Yoshi-sensei. I will seriously consider what you have said.

          March 11, 2013 at 2:01 pm

  9. Go for it!!! 🙂

    March 8, 2013 at 3:36 am

  10. Oh, I’d want to go in too! Wonderful shot!

    March 8, 2013 at 7:57 am

  11. I don’t know why anyone would abandon such a fine house.

    March 8, 2013 at 11:16 am

  12. But who could possibly resist exploring an abandoned house?

    March 8, 2013 at 12:16 pm

  13. It reminds me too much of a house in the TV series Survivors to want to go in, but it’s a great shot.

    March 8, 2013 at 8:37 pm

  14. Ha! I too always worry about No Trespassing signs. I’m glad to know that you ignore them as well. Nice image … what are you using to process? I just noticed you use the Nishita theme .. me too .. nice choice. Have a great weekend – the weather promises to be beautiful here in PA. I’m planning on cutting wood tomorrow and taking a bike ride on Sunday. I hope you manage to find time to get outside with the camera. D

  15. Ha, ha! I sense a new adventure coming on… do be careful!

    March 9, 2013 at 4:20 pm

    • Yes, I do hope to make an adventure of this. It will take a bit of planning, and some potential back-up. 🙂 I really want to get into that house!

      March 11, 2013 at 1:29 pm

  16. This is definitely the beginning of a story 😉

    March 9, 2013 at 10:39 pm

    • Yes, I’m not sure if you were following early on for some of my abandoned building adventures, but I love this sort of thing, and am eager to get back to this place to snoop around. I have to go scope it out and do some planning. It could be lots of fun. Stay tuned. 🙂

    Beautifully done. Wonderful tones. You find such interesting places. 🙂

    March 10, 2013 at 7:02 pm

  18. Very nice image, Melanie…and it does look very inviting, too, even with the signage considered…it rather reminds me of a no-trespassing sign I saw posted on a tree several miles out in the canyons…another one said private-road…leading out into the middle of nowhere. I didn’t believe them, either….. 🙂

    March 11, 2013 at 1:50 am

    • Good, good! And inspiring. I do hope to get back to this house and figure out how to get in. No-trespassing signs are big invitations, as far as I’m concerned 🙂

      March 11, 2013 at 1:41 pm

      • Yes, indeed…but still with a bit of caution. 🙂 I will look forward to what you find on your return trip.

        March 12, 2013 at 12:51 pm

  19. What an interesting old place. And a great image of it too. 🙂

    March 13, 2013 at 9:08 pm

    • Thank you. I do hope to return to it for another visit. Thanks for stopping by!

      March 14, 2013 at 1:16 am

  20. Our word trespass goes back to Medieval Latin transpassare, to pass through. Think of the lives that have passed through this old house. Your first reply makes it sound as if you might take a shot at passing through as well, however briefly.

    March 16, 2013 at 12:21 pm

    • Nice! I appreciate the encouragement. Thank you, Steve, for passing through. 😉
