This old house has stood as a land mark outside the city of Decatur Alabama since the late 1800's. The brick structure was completely gutted by fire about a year ago. With the light fog and gloomy sky I thought this one would be a great entry for the Beauty in Decay contest.
Critique welcome and appreciated.

Such a grand house!.. it's really a shame about the fire. Wonderfully captured, DP! From the view, it would appear it's in a secluded area... so peaceful looking. I especially like how you captured the light fog so low to the ground, and the grasses in the foreground! A wise choice for b&w, and I really like the composition as well! Best of luck in the contest, DP!

All your picture is missing is a psycho with a chainsaw! Very creepy house indeed....
