Ireland is full of abandoned, weatherbeaten homes.
This one is in Castlecove, a few miles north of where we stayed during our vacation.
The yard is wildly overgrown, but I hacked my way in to take a peek.
If I had taken this picture at dusk instead of dawn—and perhaps underexposed it instead of deliberately overexposing it—it would have looked like something out of a gothic novel.
Instead, it looks like it just wants a gardener and a fresh coat of paint to become someone’s home again.
This particular design, featuring a centered door surrounded by five windows, is apparently a very popular one. I saw it all over the place.
