Wooden house for barbecue in the winter park. The city of Krasnogorsk, Moscow region.

Typical village house. The village of Nazimovo in the Tver region. The village has only 6 houses and only one resident. I came here to visit a friend of Natalia, she has a huge farm and two houses ... but after she buried her husband, she has to sell it all.

Each time I travel Highway 395, I stop at this little house to see if it’s still standing. This year my thoughts turn to wondering about which of us will be the first to fall… this structure is tough. Probably like the Folks who built it.

My Little House

by J. M. Westrup

I have a little house

With windows and a door,

Two chimneys on the top,

And a plot of grass before.

 

I have a little house,

With curtains and a blind,

Two chimneys on the top,

And a plot of grass behind.

 

I have a little house,

Where I go in and out,

Two chimneys on the top,

And a garden all about.

Montacute House was built in about 1598 by Sir Edward Phelips, whose family had lived in the Montacute area since at least 1460, first as yeomen farmers before rising in status. The site was bought from the Cluniac Montacute Priory by Thomas Phelips and passed to his grandson, also called Thomas, who started planning the house, but died before it was built and left the completion.

Old farm in Glaumbær in northern Iceland.

Because of the scarcity of wood on the island, turf was used to build houses in Iceland. This old farm from the late 18th century is built in burstabær style, with its wooden ends or gaflar.

Monticello, Arkansas. Built in 1906, the Allen House is located along North Main Street and features gothic-style architecture and wrought-iron fencing. The house was planned by local businessman Joe Lee Allen to be the most impressive house the town had ever seen. Unfortunately in December 1948 the family experienced a grave tragedy – their daughter, Ladell, consumed mercury cyanide-laced punch in the house’s master suite. Out of grief, her mother sealed off the room and it would not be entered by anyone for nearly four decades. During its time as an apartment building in the 1950s, tenants would report eerie occurrences, including hazy figures appearing in photographs, furniture being unexplainably rearranged and several reports of a lady sitting in a turret window. The Allen House is now open for historic guided tours by appointment and opens its doors the last two days of October for special Halloween tours.

Houses by the sea in Borth, North Wales, gleaming in the evening sun.

Chastleton House was built between 1607 and 1612, for Walter Jones, who had made his fortune from the law,[2] although his family were originally Welsh wool merchants. The estate was bought in 1604 from Robert Catesby, although his residence was demolished to make way for the new house and no traces of the original building on this spot remain. The house is built of Cotswold stone, round a small courtyard, called the Dairy Court.

Chastleton House is famous for a scene from the Civil War where a loyal wife duped (and drugged) the Roundhead soldiers to save her husband. The anecdote shows the fundamentally domestic and peaceful world of England and the disorganization of war:

You took my empty dreams

And filled them every one

With tenderness and nobleness,

April and the sun.

 

The old empty dreams

Where my thoughts would throng

Are far too full of happiness

To even hold a song.

 

Oh, the empty dreams were dim

And the empty dreams were wide,

They were sweet and shadowy houses

Where my thoughts could hide.

 

But you took my dreams away

And you made them all come true —

My thoughts have no place now to play,

And nothing now to do.

Sara Teasdale

  

These red cottages in Sweden, I can never renounce shooting them. They are all different, yet so similar. In Sweden are still living the dream of the little cottage in our hearts.

An abandoned stone house sits alone in a field as the day ends on another winter day. House was built around 1900 by what appears to be a master mason .. perfect lines and still no cracks in her.

The Red House was once a popular Bakery & Confectionery shop at Katong. This bakery was a popular breakfast haunt among Singaporeans living in the eastern part of Singapore, especially for its signature cakes and curry puffs. It was established in 1925 and located at 75 East Coast Road. It was closed on 23 March 2003 after the shophouse where it was occupying was deemed as unsafe.

Today, the shophouse where the bakery once stood and the adjacent shophouses along the stretch of East Coast Road are being restored as a residential-retail-lifestyle heritage development. The Red House Project is slated to be completed by the second quarter of 2016, which includes a bakery and heritage gallery, with artefacts from the old bakery.

Old rural houses in Grado's lagoon

Southern US states are known for a lot of things, their food, their vibe and character, their architecture, their easy going life mentality and in the past for their vivid support on human slavery. Back in the day, at least in Lousiana, slaves used to work under brutal conditions in plantations like the one shown in my picture. Oak Alley plantation is probably the most famous among them. Built in 1837 it was a sugarcane plantation that occupied more than 220 slaves during its peak times. It is well known for the alley created by these massive southern live oak trees that runs from the majestic house all the way to Mississippi river. A visitor can take a tour of the plantation and the luxurious house, which follows the Greek revival architecture, where the Roman family, owners of the plantation, used to live. In future posts I will provide more info about slavery in Louisiana, perhaps along with a photo of the house where the slaves lived. Today, Oak alley plantation is considered a national historic landmark and it's dedicated in the memory of those people that lived under horrible conditions and were treated like nothing more than common objects or furniture.

 

PS: i was illegally parked outside the Plantation when I took this photo. A State Police trooper pulled over so I had to rush and take a shot as quickly as possible so my camera settings are quite wrong affecting the clarity of the photo.

 

Οι Νοτιες πολιτειες των ΗΠΑ ειναι γνωστες για πολλα πραγματα, για την κουζινα τους, τον παλμο και το χαρακτηρα τους, την αρχιτεκτονική τους, τον χαλαρο τροπο ζωης τους και στο παρελθον για την ενθερμη υποστηριξη τους στο θεσμο της σκλαβιας. Στα παλια χρονια, τουλαχιστον στην πολιτεια της Louisiana, οι σκλαβοι ζουσαν και εργαζονταν κατω απο απανθρωπες συνθηκες σε φυτειες οπως αυτη της φωτο. Η φυτεια Oak Alley ειναι πιθανοτατα η πιο διασημη μεταξυ αυτων. Χτιστηκε το 1837 και ηταν μια φυτεια ζαχαρης στην οποια απασχολουνταν περισσοτεροι απο 220 δουλοι. Ειναι ευρεως γνωστη για τον ιδιαιτερα εντυπωσιακο δρομο που σχηματιζεται απο τις θηριωδεις βελανιδιες ο οποιος εκτεινεται απο το κεντρικο κτηριο μεχρι την οχθη του ποταμου Mississippi. Οι επισκεπτες μπορουν να κανουν ενα tour στο πολυτελες σπιτι, το οποιο ακολουθει Αρχαιοελληνικη αρχιτεκτονική, εκει που η οικογενεια Roman, ιδιοκτητες της φυτειας, ζουσε και χρησιμοποιουσε ως "διοικητηριο" της φυτειας. Σε μελλοντικες αναρτησεις θα παραθεσω περισσοτερες λεπτομερειες για τη δουλεία στη Louisiana, πιθανον με καποιες φωτο απο τα σπιτια που ζουσαν οι σκλαβοι. Σημερα, η φυτεια Oak Alley αποτελει ιστορικο αξιοθεατο και ειναι αφιερωμενη στη μνημη αυτων των ανθρωπων που εζησαν κατω απο φρικτες συνθηκες και αντιμετωπιστηκαν στη ζωη τους ως τιποτα παρπανω απο απλα αντικειμενα η επιπλα.

 

ΥΓ: Στο σημειο απο το οποιο εβγαλα τη φωτο δεν επιτρεποταν το παρκαρισμα και καθως προσπαθουσα να την τραβηξω εμφανιστηκε ενας αστυνομικος οποτε, στην προσπαθεια μου να κανω οσο γρηγοροτερα γινεται δεν προσεξα τις ρυθμισεις της μηχανης με αποτελεσμα η ευκρινεια της φωτογραφιας να μην ειναι αυτη που επιθυμουσα.

Overtoun House is a 19th-century country house and estate in West Dunbartonshire, Scotland. Situated on a hill overlooking the River Clyde, it is two kilometres (1.2 mi) north of the village of Milton and three kilometres (1.9 mi) east of the town of Dumbarton. The house, an example of Scottish Baronial architecture, was built in the 1860s, and was donated to the people of Dumbarton in 1938. It was subsequently a maternity hospital, and now houses a Christian centre. The house is protected as a category A listed building, while the grounds are included in the Inventory of Gardens and Designed Landscapes in Scotland.

The site's name Thcomes from a spring ("font") that is still producing water in the grounds. It was the font around which the local community held its moots or meetings. An Augustinian priory was founded here in 1201 by William Briwere a businessman, administrator and courtier to four Plantagenet kings who chose to make a public demonstration of his wealth and piety. The canons welcomed pilgrims on route to Winchester, who came to worship Mottisfont relic, said to be the finger of St John the Baptist. (The word "Abbey" was added to the name "Mottisfont" by a future owner, several centuries later, but is a misnomer.

Thank you all lovely friends for kindly and nice gratulations.

Back from our trip in Norway.

In the little village where we visited our friends, this beautiful house is located. Until 1960 there was a post office, where two unmarried sisters ruled, with unlimited power.

One of the oldest public school buildings in Kansas City. It opened in 1885 and closed in 1932. It was restored to this beautiful state and now houses shops and an upscale restaurant. The Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts sits adjacent to it. A 15 second exposure as some storm clouds were rolling in. Please look at it in larger detail by clicking on the image or hitting “L” and tell me what you think. Thanks.

I love the colors of the houses in Somerville, and maybe winter is actually the best time to photograph them when the trees have lost their leaves and are less in the way. Managed to also catch this one without a car in front, a rare occurrence. IPhone 6s.
