Q: Choosing a Pentax prime lens

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

I took a photograph of this ostentatious house in 2009, not far from where I live. It was supposedly begun in 2008. At the time, it was derelict (a victim of the financial upheavals). Someone bought it a few months later and are still working on it August, 2011.

    Wow, this is fantastic. I wouldn't want to have to pay this PGE bill.

    It must be an enormous task to work on a building this size not to say the expense also... but from what I see of your picture, it is a beautiful looking mansion...What also catches my eye is the little bird on the left hand side of the gate.

    Great entry, Don! I remember this one. It is surprising that it is still not finished.

    I've seen houses like this going up then the work just quits and it sits for a long, long time. We figure that they ran out of money to complete the job? It's a beautiful house, I hope that one day it will be completed.

    Remember this wonderful mansion from your post......I think. I want the turret room. And hope someone knows a good chimney sweep.

    That's some house. Looks like an updated version of a large manor house in England. Beautifully captured, my friend.

    It is an incredible place. I bet they could pay the utilities if they charged for tours. I know I would love to see the complete product from the inside. Terrific capture and entry.

    the chimney on the left doesn´t seem to make sense (garden heating...?)
    but it´s a great building, great find!
