If you have hung around here any length of time
you likely know:
I love history.
I love architecture.
I love old buildings.
I love photographing abandoned buildings.
it breaks my heart
when old beauties are torn down.
The Painter's Gone Fishing
Fifteen years ago when Temple University bought
this old lady in Ambler it was in excellent condition outside.
But left to the elements
it now shows the signs of its forgotten state.
Echos of History
When I look at this house
I see what it once was
and what it could be again with a little lovin'.
Morning tea on the wrap around porch.
Warm breezes blowing through the windows.
Happy feet running on the hardwood floors.
Dreamy Breakfast Nook
And holding a hot cup of tea while watching
falling snow through the vintage window panes.
I'll fix a hot cup of tea and watch more snow fall today,
but not through vintage window panes.
Yep, more snow is on its way.
Will someone please tell old man winter
this is his season off?!
The evening after I took these photos
the home was used as a practice site for the local fire department.
