Settling into another day of retirement

Newer Older

A pre-dawn shot of the old Maza school. I know that I've posted images of this before, but I love how this poor old building looks. It does have a basement, and it looks very much like the above ground portion of the building is slowly sinking into that basement.

I wonder what this looked like in its prime, with a fresh coat of paint, and laughing children playing outside at recess?

Photographed on a frigid January morning in 2009

    This is beautiful Rick! Before I opened it and saw your comments I thought how nice it looked and would be nice with a fire in a fireplace. The snow on the roof and ground with the moon in the sky look so pretty. Now I can see it's sinking... so sad. Great shot!

    Seen on my Flickr contacts page. (?)

    What a nice shot of this! What a shame to see something else go to ruin, though.

    This is a lovely photo. I especially like the way the building is settling down gently into the basement.

    Looks like it was a nice building in its day, based on some of the details of the structure. Nice find and capture!

    Beautiful architectual details on the school. I love the fishtale shingle on the front dormer. Wonderful shot.

    Once again you've hit on my favorite photographic topic!

    This building is a bit more decorated than many of its type.
