Here's another shot by photographer Don Jones----a
complete contrast to the dream- city versions of Orlando here and here. I
live not too far from this very house and I've tried to photograph it
myself, but I never managed to get anything this good (or even close).
The dark green trees and the very blue sky---that crystalline shade I
never have seen anywhere but here---give this melancholy abandoned
house an almost cheerful, if endangered air. After all: are the trees
leaning in protectively in a sheltering fashion or is there an air of
menace? I'm guessing that the effect would depend in part on the time
of year and the weather....
You could imagine someone returning home to it----I mean from this distance. You can imagine someone living here.
I share Don Jones' fascination for old buildings and he has photographed many-many-many (click the link above to see). But this is one of my favorites.
