Old Chattel Houses
St. George, Barbados
Series: Walking From Jopya Drive to Byde Mill

Wood is wood, even if it is decaying. And the beauty this house still posses is remarkable. However, a little fixer upper is in order.

Some see broken glass, damaged wood, and peeling paint. I see a lovely old chattel house that has gone by the wayside, dilapidated with age.

  1. If only there was a way to restore the house without losing the charm that comes with age.

  2. Ann, I know what you mean. You might have to call in the guys from the PBS show ‘This Old House’. Those guys can fix anything. Buy, it would be hard to restore the lived in feel.

  3. Very nice shot! I like the colour and how you captured the texture of the decaying wood.


  4. Thank you Stunner, I appreciate you dropping by and commenting.

  5. The images that this photo conjure up in my mind do tell a compelling story spiritually, politically, socially, economically and philosophically; not only nationally but regionally and internationally LOL. Oh, there is so much food for thought in this picture. Photos do tell more than a thousand words.

    Thank you for sharing and for your great comments at http://www.poetrynest.blogspot.com

  6. Paterika, you should get the creative juices going and write a poem to this image.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    I'm blown away by your photos. The colours, everything - so vivid and beautiful. And you're right. The house is old and worn by time and the elements, but still beautiful, nevetheless. It's all in the eye of the beholder.

    I'll definitely be visiting again and again.

    You and Ann are inspiring me more and more to take a photography course. I've wanted to for some time now, but have been procrastinating. Anyway, one thing at a time. Until I do so, I'll continue to enjoy your wonderful photos.
