Cor. Good highlight. I really like the water-on-the-lens effect! Goes really well with the sepia.

Thanks y'all.

This photo was just crying out for the sepia treatment. Makes it look like the typical B movie house of horror.

If I win the lottery I may well snap it up, but I'll have to do an extensive carpentry course first, so I can reinstate all the little details round the windows and eaves to their former glory.

* Sprocket adds "win lottery, buy house, become better carpenter and do up house of horror" to his "to-do" list *

What a fabulous house. It is sad to see it go to wrack and ruin, but that is a great shot.

Sort of house I'd love to restore. Big enough for a family like ours, with room for a moblog event too!! :)
