Broken Reflections

I pass by this formerly beautiful old house twice each workday, it's less than a mile from my work.  You can see it on the right from this google map link (give it a second to jump to street mode).  I shot this August, 2009.

I'm not sure who owns the house or property, but it's adjacent to the Commonwealth National Golf Club.  I've watch it deteriorate each year :-(  The house has tons of character and could be restored to it's original glory.  It's stone, but someone stuccoed over the stone years ago.  Sad to see this happen.

Submitted for Weekend Reflections #36

I thought the house was owned by the golf club. But that was just an assumption. Every time I drive past I think I need to come by with my camera sometime.

I'm guessing it will be destroyed someday much to my dismay.

It's sad to see old buildings fall into such disrepair. It looks like it was a fine house at one time.

Oh, but the glass is still capturing reflections! There is still a purpose to remain standing, I guess! Nice ones!

Oh oh! What happened here? You did find some neat reflections though!

I, too, hate to see old buildings falling apart, looks as though it was once a lovely house! But it's windows can still hold lovely reflections and you've caught them perfectly! Have a wonderful weekend!

It looks like a wonderful old place. It looks great even in it's current state.

What a wonderful reflection shot. I really love photos that tell a story ... like this one. A sad story to be sure, but very interesting!
