So many pretty houses
As we take our drives to look for birds we also see many lovely houses in the country 

Some are older than others - but still fairly well kept 
The soft green lawn of spring 
A balcony over a glassed in porch 
Some have been abandoned and the weather and time have taken their toll 
And some old barns 
And new - with blooming apple trees  
One of my favorite old barns - it sits in the back of a field that is hayed every year 
Hard to get a picture of it because of the heavy traffic on the road to Stanwood - this one I took looking back with my camera held out the window - as we were speeding along (I did  have the camera strap around my wrist).  There is an eagle's nest in the tree in the skyline above the barn.

Do you prefer taking photos of new or old houses and buildings?

Old houses, definitely!

I justlove the way that houses in countries are built of the indigenous materials. We have no wooden houses at all here. Almost all the houses in the Yorkshire Dales are built of the local stone. Some more modern ones are built of brick. I have travelled a lot in the US and absolutely love those wooden houses.

Is that first place the House of the Rising Sun?

I see the eagle's nest! Lovely photos. I love old barns and old homes too. So much charm and character compared to the new ones. And if their walls could talk..! :)

When I see those old houses, I want to rush in and fix them up to their former glory.

I love to photograph old houses. I am fascinated with architecture and the beautiful workmanship on the old homes.

Some of the houses in the Bellingham area are simply beautiful. Those covered porches are pretty irresistible.

Lovely houses, I especially like the second one xxx

Old houses have such charm. I love the windows in that abandoned home.

The abandoned house just calls to me - I wonder what its history is and if it would like someone like me to approach it, fix it up, and welcome a new family to live inside of has such an aura of mystery!
