forgotten


There is something about an abandoned building that calls out to me. They intrigue me. There is always a sense of sadness and wonder. What was the history? Why does it sit forgotten? 

A friend of mine introduced me to this old church. I could have spent a lot of time here, but our spouses were waiting in the cars and it was a very hot day. I would love to visit here in the winter.

I'm with you. This is fascinating. I particularly love the grey toned photo of the exterior. You have such a good eye for photography.

Just past Blomidon, on the road to Cape Split and Scots Bay ... am I right ?

I've taken visitors there.

I love your photos Sara. Makes me think I should go back and switch some of mine to black and white and see how they look like that.

Hmmm. Now I'm wondrin' if it IS the same church after all. The one I know has more graffiti and the ceiling is falling in more ... so where is this one ?

So easy to see the draw to this place. I'm saddened by the decay but love being able to see the layers of history too. Love that top photo!

These photos are captivating. Thanks for sharing these. I love the one with the green window. Such a wonderful contrast of life and death.

Especially the third photo from the top…..though it's tough to choose a favorite.
Where is this church?

The church is near Diligent River, Nova Scotia. From Parrsboro, take the 209...it's on the right hand side of the road as you're heading towards Cape d'Or...I think it's just after you pass through Diligent River. It's quite overgrown and easy to miss in the summertime. (I had a friend take me there, otherwise I don't know that I would have seen it)
If you're interested in going, you should go soon...I don't think it will be standing much longer.
