With today’s post, we take one final look at the last house we photographed in an area undergoing massive development. The entire section of housing here is likely on a short fuse, time-wise, and will probably be consumed and demolished to make way for a new and shiny condo/townhouse unit in the near future. With the blossoming of the local cherry trees to add a splash of color, these images really look to me like a nice tall flute of pink effervescent champagne just bubbling away.
We have driven by this house countless times, and each time I’ve really really wanted to stop to capture some images. With the active development going on right up the street, I finally decided to make the time to avoid the disappointment of showing up one day only to find a barren lot with a sign advertising some new condo development. This house has looked like this for years, and I am sure this is no surprise. The roof has tin sheets affixed, likely to try to temporary remedy issues with the roof. I think the most astonishing thing to me about this image, however, is the rocks on the roof. If you look closely, you will see the entire roof is peppered with stones and rocks for some reason.
Another angle here gives us a side view of the house, and we can take in the details of the worn fireplace and can see the tin sheets on the roof a littler clearer. A lone red Canadian Post mailbox adds some personality to the scene, and again the pink blossoming cherry tree really produces a great splash of color to offset the surrounding elements. It was truly a strange sight to behold, and I was really glad to get a chance to photograph it and share it with everyone here.
