That Old Bungalow

Whenever I walk through North Road, I stop by these gates
And I peer inside

 Trying to see as much as I can
 Through the dense foliage
 Ferocious growth
 And tangled vines
 I glimpse a dark window here
 An old fountain there.
 But the merciless verdure pushes me back
 And I retreat
 Turning back for one last look
And another
Before going my way.

Beautiful series of shots of both the bungalow and the foliage enveloping it...

There is just something - mystery, romantic atmosphere, history, stories - about old houses that makes me gravitate towards them. Your pictures make me curious about this house and its stories. Also, just one hope: it is allowed to be left the way it is and not be subject to erasure by being demolished

Ladies, thank you for your comments :)

Nancy, yes, I'd really like to climb over that fence, however I think I'd like to send Robyn over first.

Priyanka, I'm very curious about this house too. It is just a matter of time before it is erased like so many others in this lovely part of the city.Photographing it is one way of keeping it with me I guess.
