Window of house slated for demolition.

Transitions have  been on my mind a lot lately.  A window provides an opening into a house…

as does the front door.  The notice says that this house is slated for demolition-the sign also says that the house was built “circa 1830”.

I wonder what the house looked like when it was built over 150 years ago.  It appears that the section to the right was added at some point in the past.  This house has stood for all that time, and now is being torn down-the final transition.  What will take its place?

Above is a photograph of the Post Road Bridge, which leads into Westport, Conn.  This photograph is looking back toward the house pictured above, which is just up and across the street from these much newer buildings.

This is a much wider angle view of the same scene.   The tighter shot makes the bridge and buildings on the far shore seem larger (increasing the focal length will do that).  However, the wider shot, which includes much more of the river and sky above, also provides some scale.  Those structures now seem to be dwarfed by the water and clouds and therefore of seemingly less significance by comparison.  If all of the buildings, along with the bridge, were to be demolished, the river and sky would remain.

Interestingly, it is those that cannot be replaced.

Take care.
