he old house
In the middle of the street was an ancient house, it must be more than 150 years old.
Its mossy roofs allow the water to pass through the great rains.
Here, the light does not enter afloat, the windows are limited to avoid the cold.
A bushy garden where fruit trees, with flowers, and many nettles grow in disorder.
An old house that keeps its past, its laughter and its tears.
A house still standing!

Bonjour Philippe
I enjoy your harmonic and atmospheric picture of this old house and I love your note that reads like a poem.
Excellent presentation. Have a nice day. Groet Rob

Bonjour Philippe,

An old house, looking dark and mysterious, against the pale clouds, and surrounded by prickly, stretching branches, adding to the sense of secrecy and drama.
A very well composed photograph, perfectly set up to create this atmosphere.

Have a lovely day,
Bev :-)

Bonjour Philippe

Looks as though Spring has arrived in these parts. I like the square format. Good sharpness and density levels. The green moss growing on the slate roof is a nice touch. Tfs!

Hello Philippe,
It does not lack charm this old house with its nicely textured walls. I like very much the well managed light and shadow contrasts and that beautiful textural detail. The delightful accompanying note rounds out a lovely presentation.

Dobar dan.
Lep pogled, dobar tekst ...
Lepo pokazano mesto i stara kuca, dobar kontrast i ostrina, lepe boje, lepo uhvacen trenutak sa belim oblacima.
Lepa stara kuca i drvece.
Zelim vam lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje.

Good day.
Nice view, good text ...
Beautifully shown place and old house, good contrast and sharpness, nice colors, beautifully caught moment with white clouds.
Nice old house and trees.
I wish you a beautiful and successful day, all the best.

Bonjour Philippe,

Les arbres cadrent bien la maison. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails d e la vieille maison. La bonne luminosité fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journée.


Bonjour Philippe,

Cette maison doit être plus belle au mois de juillet avec de la verdure sur les murs de pierres et des feuilles aux arbres pour servir de camouflage ou encore de maquillage. Beau cadrage précis.



Ciao caro Philippe, lovely composition with fascinating old house, wonderful natural colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Bonsoir Philippe,
Old house but still well cared. Looks as people living there even as the yard is a bit neglected - the house has special charm.
Au revoir,

Bonjour Philippe ,
On a l'impression que cette vieille maison est presque en ruines . Mais en observant attentivement , des détails nous font voir qu'elle est encore habitée et que son jardin est entretenu . J'aime beaucoup cette image.

Salut Philippe,l'atmosphere du debut de primtemps donne un charme particulier a la composition,capture excellente de cette vieille maison,lumiere difficile mais bien exposee' et details excellents aussi. Belle soiree' et merci,Luciano

Ciao Philippe
il bello di questa casa è che sembra aver mantenuto le stesse caratteristiche di quando è stata costruita, è invecchiata senza cambiare aspetto.
Gli alberi senza foglie ci fanno vedere meglio la casa.

Hi Philippe
wow, this is fantastic! I wish I was here to capture this with you, I think i'd like this one alot.

love the vines and roots growing all over the house, the moss, the creepy atmosphere, so much to admire here. awesome!

Hi dear Philippe,

A brave house I would say. Despite the time it is there, standing and linking past and present at the same time. Very intriguing picture. Full of stories, of course.

Warm regards


Hi Philippe
Nice compo under such lighting condition when there's enough elements to admire, in particular the unique design and you even managed to coordinate a great contrast to blue sky. Well done, Congrats
Best wishes

Hello Philippe,
It may not have all the modern amenities, but it has character. Well seen and documented!

apesar da rusticidade e dos adornos do clima e do tempo, a casa parece estar sendo usada e parece bem cuidada.bela foto mostrando a elegância de sua simplicidade.
