Lovely old colonial architecture. I'll bet it dates back to the mid 1800's. You are right about character Michelle. I'd love a tour of the interior, wouldn't you? Nice presentation and the flock of Canada Geese adds a nice touch.

Michelle- OH I love the look of this. Beautiful in many ways, sort of creepy in others. That movie psyco came to mine. The treatment used gives the picture a special look. The overcast sky and those huge birds flying help add to the creepy look that I find appealing in this picture. Marvelous colors and composition with outstanding details. In particular I love the upper window painted that blueish green. A special touch to the picture.
Remarkable find and presentation my friend.
Have a wonderful day, take care.
