organ street

the rest of the town has forgotten this neighborhood.
houses await families long since gone.
the stillness on organ street belongs to another century.

A sad little poem to go with this pretty old house...the colors remind me of mint chocolate chip ice cream!

Strange and sad that this house and neighborhood are being overlooked. It is a grand house with lots of potential.

I think it is good sometimes to be overlooked. That way you don't get strip malls.

Sunny said...

It looks like a fine old two family house with a nice slate roof and some wonderful trees in the yard. Why is it a forgotten?

I don't mean this to be sad at all. It's a wonderful feeling to walk there, very calming, but because it's cut off from all of the main town thoroughfares, it has a timeless feel to it. As McCasey said, 'it is good sometimes to be overlooked'.

'Tis a beautiful house...how can it be overlooked. It is still being lived in, right?

But then, sometimes, I like being "overlooked" and away from the hustle and bustle.

I can be a master of low expectations.

All houses should be filled with people who love them. Beautiful shot.

Autums looks so much greater in small towns, in the middle of the nature, than in cities. A beautiful house, nice shot.

That really looks like it would be a nice old house to live your life out in but it could be a trap of high heat bills and summer cooling woes. To say nothing of out of day wiring and plumbing. Still, it looks lovely in the setting it is in your photo.

Yes, it is a house that needs to have open windows and curtains billowing and children hanging off the porch railing and dogs in the yard. . . How nice to fill up a blank stage with our own 'pieces.'

Anya said...

NO :(
I have two daughters
Marjolein & Suzanne
(now 22 & 24 years)
They have both played with it when they are little and than I have given it to the poor children.
(for charity)
But it was in those colors ...
:-)
Thanks for your interest !!
Maybe I will find a OLD picture from it.

I love seeing these grand old houses, I imagine they're lovely in any season.

I recently discovered your photos and I like them so much... I find they often are looking like pictures, I mean extraordinary paintings. However, your shots are moving me profoundly not only for their high aesthetic and artistic value, but also for the precious feelings they are able to convey, thanks to your view's aptitude so rich in nuances. It's something like a variegated sense of life, that really touches me as a daily present. So, thanks very much indeed, hoping that you'll forgive my bad English...

I'd like some overlooked house, in a quiet and not crowden neighborhood. But that's a dream here.
Wonderful post, but it made me a bit sad...

brattcat said...

Siu, thank you for your eloquent words. Believe me, there is not a thing wrong with your English.

JM said...

Lovely! I agree with McCasey.

I like this house on Organ Street. I like the colors that compliment the slate roof and I find the farmers porches so inviting.

How I wish I could swing on that porch!!
