What a difference a bit of sunshine and some blue sky make to a photograph. This afternoon we again walked past the house that I featured in the photo challenge.
The weather couldn’t be a bigger contrast. When I took the photo it was around 4 degrees, overcast and just starting to sleet. We were wrapped up in thick coats, hats and gloves. Today the sun was shining, and we were in shirt sleeves.
The house is still shut up of course, but somehow it looks more cheerful in the sunshine, with the shadow of a tree playing across the side wall. As if it believes that it has not been abandoned forever. Hopeful.
