some of the windows in these houses are artificially doctored
but boarded up underneath
(while waiting to be demolished)

they look real from a distance

(like from across the street) ?

Marie, I've just realised that you are not a photographer, you're a documantary maker. Why are they knocking these houses down?

yet it is (somehow) beautiful out.

can't explain

and a useless one too Damian http://www.photography-on-the.net/forum/images/smilies/icon_lol.gif

this is in another town about 30 miles from where I live

I rang the council this morning (before I posted the pictures)
to find out about the houses as I was sad to see the likes of them go forever .

but the person I needed was away until this evening.
at the time I took the pictures I couldn't delay as I had to get back and off that street a.s.a.p.
(car parked and pressure was on with the driver)



The Good News
the council told me the houses are all ok .
some of them are privately owned and they will be preserved .
their appearance .

they are very small
building can go on at the back of them if they need to be extended
the ones about to fall down will be rebuilt
and all is well.
thank goodness for that as they are a delightful sight in a busy university town


thanks Damian

I agree with Damian. You have a flair for showing life, events, and humanity in very interesting ways!

I really like the shot of the long row of houses. Great DOF!

Very nice Marie, Glad to see they will rebuild the house that is coming down. Hope they match the roof shingles better than they did in Photo #4 (I think) :lol: :lol: :lol:

I love these shots Marie. Really sharp.
Do you mind mentioning the name of the town?
The first two are my faves. If you had 2 more similar verticals they would lok good in a group of 4 as a poster. Lots of Character.

The faux windows are neat. Occasionally, no, make that very rarely, a boarded up building in Hartford gets some window treatment, usually a school project where kids paint something on the plywood before the contractor installs them in the windows.

It's sad to know some of these buildings are coming down. The replacements never have the charm of the originals.

Thanks for the scenes.

I got you a present today http://www.photography-on-the.net/forum/images/smilies/icon_eek.gif
saw it by the canal

just added an S where the first letter was missing (as though waiting)




here it is

Droichead means bridge in the Irish language

Sandy's old and interesting bridge by the canalhttp://www.photography-on-the.net/forum/images/smilies/icon_lol.gif http://www.photography-on-the.net/forum/images/smilies/icon_lol.gif

being a two story
& different heights


the top window on the right is where I have the computer.

I think so aam 1234 (re over sharpened)
I was trying not to but wanted the chimneys slates and doors etc sharp enough
but then the pebbles ( on the walls) got a bit gritty (over sharpened)

the first picture I done accented edges (whatever it's called) in elements
to make it a little bit weirdy..ish looking
http://www.photography-on-the.net/forum/images/smilies/icon_lol.gif

thanks a lot for saying.
I appreciate it as I wondered

thanks Jim

I think I have seen something like what you mention

anything is better then the hoarding itself sometimes

I thought the window makeover was a very clever idea

albeit's not good lookinghttp://www.photography-on-the.net/forum/images/smilies/icon_lol.gif
but it serves it's purpose............... until the new dawnhttp://www.photography-on-the.net/forum/images/smilies/icon_lol.gif



last year I took a shot of part of an old house falling down (nearer to here)
and now I see it is completely gone

http://www.photography-on-the.net/forum/images/smilies/icon_sad.gif

bashed down completely

really really glad I got the shot before the building went

no worries , I expect it needed to go
just a pity it was not kept the way it originally was.

I think I will show you that picture and you'll see how bad it was

these would be exceptional as they are very old Maz, thank you

I suppose many houses over here are built of similar material today.

the slates in the roof look the samehttp://www.photography-on-the.net/forum/images/smilies/icon_confused.gif
