Ghost of the Past...

"You must learn some of my philosophy. Think only of the past as its remembrance gives you pleasure." ~ Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

I ran across this photo today. Since we are in the dead of winter, I thought this would be a good post. For those who have never seen this house, it was one of my favorite subjects to photograph in Crisfield. It was torn down last year. In fact, it went so fast, no one knew about it until it was on the ground. Of all things that should be torn down in Crisfield, this should have been the last to go. Artists and photographers loved it, and thanks to them, this house lives on in both paintings and photographs.

FYI: the house was situated on the bay and had a spectacular view of the water. The sunsets were breathtaking.

The forlorn places have a haunting charm. I wonder if anyone in Crisfield still has memories of living there! Nice to see you posting again!
