Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk, Monson, MA (Part 2)
To continue the walk from yesterday’s post, as we ambled along Main Street, we were invited onto the property of a very old Victorian house. It was part of the old Monson Academy which was established in 1804 and closed in 1971. According to our photo walk host, prior to the June 1 tornado, many of the townspeople did not know of the existence of this particular house as it was surrounded by dense trees. It has a very prominent location on Main Street and there’s no mistaking it now. The tornado unveiled a gorgeous property in need of a lot of tender loving care.
These old cars were lined up on the property. I’m not sure if they have been there a while or were a new addition. I’d like to think that they’d been there for many years only to be rediscovered when the tornado blew through.
Behind this section of the house you can view the hill and the path of the tornado. Shot from this angle the tornado would have been coming right at me.
Because care to the property has been on the structure itself, the yard has taken on a life of its own which is where I found these beautiful “weeds”.
My favorite photo in this batch and my second favorite overall is the window.
There will be one more post regarding the walk. And, yes, the theme of yesterday’s post was fences (but I liked Karma’s creative, “Through the fence”).
