Nice one. I like the framing, tighter on one side than the other. It somehow enlivens the image. Were they wooden shingles on the roof?

The outer roofing appears to be tar shingles, Ken, but the deterioration of the shingles over the bay windows shows an earlier set of wooden shingles.

There's a lot of really great elements in here. There's also a powerful, and I think deliberate based on the way you framed it, visual flow from left to right. My problem is that there's nothing there on the right. My eyes are drawn strongly off to the right side of the frame where there is.. nothing to look at.

The way you clipped the roofline on the left bothers me slightly, but in the first place I realize that it's probably just more junk and more junk further to the right, so something's gonna get clipped, and in the second place it really supports and emphasizes that left-to-right structure. If there was a guy standing by that window on the right, this would be perfect.

You're using your street eyes on landscapes, and it's interesting as hell. I'm not convinced that it's fully working, yet.

All that said, this is a wonderful object, and a good and revealing photograph of that object.

Curious why you captioned this "portrait"?  Trying to say something about the house?

Hi Brett. Portrait photographers always talk about capturing the soul of the subject. This portrait captures the soul of the house, maybe even the souls of the ghosts within it.

I've noticed a trend on LuLa recently of strange, wacky, outlandish post headings. Makes you a hipster, Russ Wink

I've always been one, Slobodan.
